Test his HBsAg.  If positive, he is immune and your HBV cannot hurt him.

Sounds like my situation right now. My hubby is immune bc he got vaccinated when he's young. The vaccination will protect him for life if he's immune. That's my very first question when Im in GI office, and he told me my hubby will be fine and no need to get boost shot.
