hello dr. and thank you for your time.

i have a question regarding my hep B vaccine. i didn't follow the normal time line between each dose so i'm not sure if i'm immune. 1st dose - winter 1994 2nd dose - summer 1999 3rd dose - summer 2005 4th dose - summer 2006 i also had a titer done for Hep B surface Ab. it's 91.2 mIU/mL. Is this consistent with immunity?

Also, would this effect an HIV test?

thank you and God Bless!

Response from Dr. McGovern

Yes - you are all set.
