I got syphilis before like almost 6 months already and it was treated with oral intake of antibiotic and it was cured already. Now, I got a test of 1.2 in RPR/VDRL. I undergo to penicilin G vacination. For 3 weeks.
What test should I take for me to confirm if I am still positive or negative already? Will I still get a negative result in a syphilis test? Please enlighten me.

You don't indicate what the test result was prior to treatment. These tests will remain positive for months to years after successful treatment.
