Vaccination is to turn HBsAB to positive, not HBsAg.  About 6 months.

Is a  150 day HBsag NEG likely to change to POS?

I don't think so.  Cajim is correct, the point of the vaccine is to give you the antibodies that recognize HBVsAg, that is it should make you HBVsAb positive (Hepatitis B Virus surface Antibody positive) and with a little luck that will prevent you ever becoming HBVsAg positive (Hepatitis B Virus s Antigen positive).

hbsag has nothing to do with vaccine, the vaccine has no virus in it, you can only develop antibody not the virus
