Frantic with worry that I could loose my job over hep b scare
Sep 16, 2003

Dear Doc, Recently I joined our local police force. As part of the training we had to receive the Hep B Vaccine. after the second shot I donated blood however the results came back that I hap been exposed to Hep B Im currently awaiting the follow up test. Am I worrying too much and If i do have Hep B will i be dismissed from my work.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

No! If they do anything, get the best lawyer in town and I will testify for you! Besides Hep B is treatable now. I would also recommend getting the Hep A vaccine if you are not already immune. Stay safe! DTD

HELP my children may have been exsposed by house guest!
Thank you
