false hiv + testing_Hepatitis
Jul 4, 2007


-Can a recent vaccination against Hepatitis B cause a false HIV + testing? -If it is yes, how can it be proven that the individual is actually not HIV + and it is a false testing because of the recent Hepatitis B vaccination? -Can we call this kind of vaccination which was administered 5 months ago 'recent'? Thank you for the answer in advance.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not suspect that the vaccine was a cause of a false positive HIV test.
