is this fatal
Dec 3, 2006

I was selabit for 5 years now the first person I was with now tells me he just found out he has hepititas b if I have it is it fatal.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would simply get tested for hepatitis B infection. It is possible that you were vaccinated in the past and just don't know it. If your panel is completely negative, I would get vaccinated.

If you DID get hepatitis B infection, the vast majority of adults clear the infection (about 95%).

Please answer
