hepatitus vaccine
Oct 29, 2004

Im HIV positive, should I get the Hepatitus vaccine. I dont have Hepatitus I was told you could get it from just kissing Also, once HIV infected, can I become re-infected??/

Response from Dr. McGovern

HIV patients should be vaccinated against Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B. It is also true that you can get re-infected with another person's strain of HIV so safe sex is key for your protection and the protection of others. Dr. McGovern
