Hepatitis b shots
Apr 11, 2014

If I have had the series of shots can I get hepatitis B

Response from Dr. Taylor

IF you did not have chronic hepatitis B at the time you started the vaccines, and you received the vaccines according to the standard schedule, and your post-vaccine tests showed that you developed protective antibodies, you are protected and cannot get infected. If any step along this path is unknown or not the case, you cannot be sure.
