Mar 14, 2009

hi Dr.barbara mc govern,i would like to ask if my wife had already vaccinated completely of HBV VACCine,And if im infected of hepa b virus,is it possible that our soon to be baby child will get infected too and my wife?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your wife should have testing for anti-HBs to be certain that she is protected against HBV by the vaccine. If this is protective then she will be protected from getting HBV from you.
