getting hepB vac for HIV+
Feb 3, 2003
Is it safe to get vaccinated for hepititis B if one is HIV positive?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Not only is it safe, but it is recommended by the US Public Health service. It is also recommended for all kids by the American Academy of Pediatrics. It is slightly less effective if your CD4 cells are low, but it is worth it. Go get vaccinated for B and A as well. DTD
