I am 24 yr old, I did not have Hepatitis vaccination before and I am hep. negative. Should I get vaccinated ?
I am not health worker, not sex worker.
Any how my doctor prescribed vaccination to ease me and I got it from pharmacy. (Don't know why he told me to get from pharmacy.. I thought it should be in doctor's place )
The dose is loaded in syringe. I kept in my household refrigerator until my next visit (week). Is it safe ?? I am afraid of keeping vaccinations along with food. Does vaccination reproduce virus ?
When cosulted with pharmacist, he showed me the vaccine that it is closed and safe. But since he touched the vaccine syringe without gloves..is it still useful ??
Will I be in danger, if I decided to use it for vaccination.
Please help!! I am getting a feeling that vaccination will get contaminated...
In general, the vaccine is enclosed and should be safe to handle.
The hepatitis vaccine does not contain live virus, and should be safe as long as the container or syringe hasn't been broken.
