I was vaccinated for Hep. B last year but didn't follow the recommended schedule. I had the first shot in Jan 99, the second in April 99 and the third in August 99. My doctor told me that I should still be immune from Hep B. Is this right?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Dear Vaccination,

You can ask your MD to test your antibody level and determine if you are immune. It is easy to do! DTD

reason of me being HIV positive
What are my risks?
