Please i need help. hep B result
Mar 11, 2013

Hi Dr. last time i checked i my test shows HEP B reactive. if i take a HEP B Vaccine shot will it become nonactive? Thanks

Response from Dr. Taylor

A hepatitis B result cannot become non-reactive by being vaccinated against hep B.

If only the hep B core antibody is reactive, it can be helpful to receive the vaccine to prevent future infection.

See if you can find out which hep B result was reactive so you can gain a better understanding of this result.
