Vaccine Question..
      #37163 - 07/17/02 09:10 PM

I understand they are working on a hiv vaccine but from what understand about vaccinations is that they create antibodies to protect you from the virus. A HIV vaccine would make you hiv positive would it not? Why would anybody want to take a shot that would make them hiv positive? Anbody know more about this?

yes hep vaccine make you positive for antiobodies thats why your protected from hep. As ar as hiv goes not sure why they would be looking into a vaccine as being positive or hiv is considered a danger rather than protection.
