Anti - HBs results
Oct 16, 2011

Good day Dr., I'm just concerned about my anti-hbs results. I already have 2 booster shots of hepatitis b and I have 2 results of <5.0 mUI/mL which was done after each shots consecutively. Should I be alarmed of these 2 results?

Response from Dr. McGovern

They show that you are not responding.

I would discuss the possibility of double-dosing of HBV vaccine to improve these results.
