Response from Dr. McGovern

Your baby was probably given a series of HBV vaccines to prevent transmission. A vaccine would not be appropriate for you since you already have evidence of past infection. There should be any issues related to a US visa.

You should get vaccinated against Hepatitis A.

please help me move on or not!
