do i need hep b booster shot?
Aug 18, 2011

Good day Doctor; i just want to ask if i need hep b booster shot, if my anti hbs is reactive (55.77 mIU/L COV 10.000)?THANKS DOC...

Response from Dr. Young


Usually a HBV SAb level between 10 and 100 is considered a poor (current) response, and indicative of the need for a booster.

I'd recommend talking to your doctor about what your test results imply for you.


Should I ask my doctor to change my treatment?
PEP and RNA PCR test
