Do I need a booster dose?
Jan 11, 2009

My Anti HBs (ECLIA) result is 871.9 IU/L (reactive). The COV is 10.000. My Hep B surface antigen is nonreactive. Do I need a booster dose?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Anyone after immunization with a level of surface antibody about 10 is well protected.

What does this mean
HbAsg from Non-reactive to Reactive in a span of 3 months
