Hep B
Dec 23, 2002

My baby girl got the 3 shots vacine and the lab result show negative. What is the reason and any risks ?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Hepatitis B vaccine is not 100% effective in anyone. Antibodies do develop in over 95% of people. If they do not then many times a second round of vaccination will work. If not then there is probably some immunity anyway and that is about all that can be done. Good luck! DTD

Treatment Cost
Can Dilantin give a false positive of Hep B?
