Hep B
Jan 24, 2008

I am starting a nursing course at uni. My blood tests show i have no Immunity to hep B even after my needle. How can i build up an Immunity

Response from Dr. McGovern

If your series of hepatitis B immunizations did not show protective antibodies, you can ask for a booster. Two weeks later, I would get tested for surface antibodies for HBV to see if this worked.
