I was vaccinated for Hepatitus A and B prior to chemo is it still good?
I was vaccinated for Hepatitis A and B in early 1995. In early 2008 I underwent chemo for MM. I was asked earlier this year if I have had Hepatitis B as I now have an enlarged Spleen and Non alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver. Are they seeing residual antibodies and is my vaccination still viable. What test need to be done?

To test whether you have Hepatitis B is to test whether HBsAg is positive. To test whether you still have protective immunity against Hepatitis B from your vaccination in 1995, is to test for the presence and quantity of your HBsAb, it should be positive and above 10 miu/ml.
