Can a properly vaccinated person who comes in contact with Hepatitis B transmitt the virus to others?
Response from Dr. McGovern
If patient A who is "properly" vaccinated has intercourse or shares needles with patient B who has chronic hepatitis B, there will be no transmission of hepatitis B virus. This of course depends on the fact that patient A had a good immunologic response to the vaccine and made protective antibodies. This usually occurs reliably unless the patient may be themselves immunosuppressed.
