We are not doctors here. The information you seek is best provided by your doctor. Your sister must ask the doctor to have the baby immunized with the 3-dose Hepatitis B vaccine (with or without HBIG according to the standard local practice) immediately after birth, no delay. Also if you sister has very high viral load, she may consider treatment in the third trimester to reduce her viral load and to further reduce the risk of vertical transmission.
