hepatitis vaccination
Feb 9, 2013

hi doctor thanx for replying to previous question. am 40 male with 346 . i have viraday since 5 months . and full dose anti tb akt4-1 since one and half month .after 6 month cd4 increased to 420 . iam negative to hepatitis virus 2 month back. Can i give vaccination for hepatitis now?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi again,

I'm assuming that you're referring to hepatits B vaccine- if you don't have antibodies to HBV, it's recommended that you receive the vaccine series (it's three shots spread over a three month period). You can certainly receive it now.

Be well, BY
