1)Could you please inerpret these results?

You had exposure to HBV in the past but now you are cleared of HBV.

2)Do you think im having enough possibilities of being infected with Hep.B virus?

You are still anti-HBs negative, so you need to get vaccinated.

3)Which are your recommendations?

Complete the vaccination series and monitor your anti-HBs till it turns positive.

Best.

Thanks for your fast response
I got two opinions from 2 doctors.
The first one told me that im clear from Hep B virus and i dont need to be vaccinated
The second told me that i should check my viral load,because there is a possibility that my HBsAg could be undetectable,so i do have a chronic Hep B.

Now i am really confused.
Any doctor here whom i can get another opinion?
