I had a needle stick injury and I have not completed my Hepa B vaccine yet. The patient said she does not have Hepa B and completed her prenatal check up. I called a laboratory and asked when can I have my blood checked to see if I have Hepa B,C, and HIV they said I could have my blood tested now for Hepa B and C, and HIV after 3 mos is the earliest. However the doctor from the hospital said Hepa B cannot be detected if I have will my blood tested too early, but I still went to the laboratory and had my blood tested. Both my hepa b and c were nonreactive with a result of HBsAg with titer 0.25 nonreactive and Anti HCV 0.03 nonreactive. Do I still need to recheck Hepa B and C?
