Response from Dr. McGovern
If the antibodies are positive, you have either been vaccinated in the past or you were exposed to both infections in the past.
With hepatitis A, it is hard to tell. It really doesn't matter though because hepatitis A does NOT cause chronic liver disease.
With hepatitis B, if all your other hepatitis test results are negative, then you were vaccinated.
