We all got free Twinrix (A+B) vaccines, because of my hep c. That was cool. My doc applied for it. They have some kind of law in DK that if a person has b or c, the whole family is entitle to get the Twinrix. Yes, I beat you in numbers. Got 5 and the hubby got 5 too. The last ones just moved out last month. Life is good!
Thanks so much! Wow, that is quite crazy. When I was dxed with hep c my doc checked the whole family for hep b too. One of my daughters was positive for antibodies for both b and c, but had cleared both herself. None of us, except her had the pos antibodies for hep b. She must have gotten it when she was a child and was one of the few to clear it. What a crazy confusing disease the B is. I'm so glad my kids didn't have any of it! I really hope that you will clear it by yourself one day! Maybe next year will be a good year! :-)
