What are you more likly to contract from blood or bodly fluid HIV or Hep B and if your vacsonated for Hep B can you still catch it?
| Response from Dr. McGovern
HBV is easier to acquire through sex than HIV. HBV is also easier to acquire through injection drug use than HIV. However, with multiple exposures, patients can be infected with both.
Vaccination protects against HBV infection if protective antibodies are formed.
