Babies need follow up vaccines?

i am positive chronic hepa B..i have a child she was vaccinated with anti hepa B during her birth. then another booster or vaccine within 24hrs of her birth. I never breast feed her as advised by her pedia. She is now 2 yrs old, does she needs any follow up vaccination or check up to prevent her from having Hepa b? pls advise...thanks

your baby should have the hep b vaccination and HBIG at birth and 3 more doses/shots at 2nd, 4th and 6th month. Is she hep b free? You should go check if she has antibodies if you have not done so.

My GI doc told me that it's safe for hep b patient to breastfeed their baby, it benefits both the mother and baby. I'm on Viread and planning on breastfeed too. If your gf has antibodies, she should be fine, just double check with doc to make sure she has it. If she gets pregnant the first blood test will tell you too.
The most critical time for baby to get transmitted is when delievery time, but as long you give the baby 2 shots before 12 hrs, he/she have a very low chance of getting hep b.

Research findings suggest strongly that any risk of transmission associated with breast milk is small compared to the high risk of exposure to maternal blood and body fluids at birth. Experts on hepatitis, however, do have concerns that breast pathology such as cracked or bleeding nipples or lesions with discharge or drainage could expose the infant to infectious levels of HBV.
its better not to breastfeed i think...i dont want my child to get infected.
