Mar 15, 2010

Response from Dr. McGovern

Sorry, I get hundreds of questions and can't answer them all in my spare time.

A antibody level of greater than 10 is protective against infection so your level is great. You will need further follow up to make certain your level stays in that range. When it drops, you will need a booster.
