Response from Dr. McGovern

Your friend should be certain that her immune response to the vaccine was adequate. In other words, she should check her anti-HBs titers to be certain that they are protective.

Unprotected sex however still carries other risks such as HIV, Human papilloma virus acquisition, and other STDs.
