complete shot of vaccine
Oct 15, 2005

I had a complete shot of vaccine for hepa b. BUt now i was diagnose hepa b postive. A Clinical instructor told me that there is a vaccine that causes hepa b test positive, is it true?

I went to a doctor and he ordered for a new test Hbeag and liver ultrasound three months ago but i am so afraid, I havent done it yet.

Response from Dr. McGovern

When you get vaccinated for hepatitis B, your hepatitis B surface antibody becomes positive. That is a good thing because it is the antibody which protects you.
