about hepatitis b vaccine
Mar 31, 2014

Hello Madam....i am a hep b person. my test was found positive. due to my financial condition i didn't able to continue my treatment. but i'am quite ok due to my fitness condition. recently my family fix my marriage. i just wanted to know what vaccine need for her to keep her safe. i need your help madam.

Response from Dr. Taylor

The person you are going to marry should be tested for hepatitis B surface antigen. If this is positive or reactive, she already has hepatitis B, and should see a doctor. If her hepatitis B surface antigen is non-reactive or negative, she should complete the hepatitis B vaccine series before you have intimate contact.

Do i have hepatitis B?
