Can you get sick from sewer exposure if you are already vaccinated for Hepatitis?
Response from Dr. McGovern
You can check you antibodies to the vaccine to be certain that you are protected (eg, to make certain that your vaccines worked). This would be reasonable for someone who has ongoing exposure - like a sewer worker.
