One shot offers you partial protection plus your own immunity. However, it is still best to complete the series and test for level of HBs antibody to be sure.

How infective your partner is depends on your partner's viral load (hbvdna). The term "healthy carrier" is not used anymore as it can be misleading. Regular checkup is advised as status can change.
