Sep 1, 2009

I have been diagnosed with hep b since 2006 and I found out that I have chronic hep b and I also found out as a child I never got the the three series of shots is there a chance that I will get rid of the virus. Please respond to me thanks.

Response from Dr. McGovern

A small minority of patients eventually clear chronic infection on their own, but most need treatment to clear virus. However, not everyone has liver disease, so you need to speak to your doctor.

Can I have Hepa B vaccine?
