Is there a risk for a man with a partner having hepatitis B, but he is vaccinated already?

Does the vaccinated man have positive hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs)?  If yes, he is immune and there is no risk.

There shouldn't be.  To be safe you can check your antibody levels and get a booster if needed.

"no HBsAg" may not mean he is immune, positive hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs) does.
