I would like to know if i have HEB or not and do i have enough vaccine or not so i can take some more vaccine, i remember i have the vaccine back in High School but couldnt remember finish all 3 shots yet, so i would like to know if i need any more vaccine.

Hiya!
Your test means you have the antibodies for Hep B, but the virus isn't active. Was it the hepti-vac series you were inoculated with? -The one that left a golf-ball in your rear end because it was suspended in a colloid of beeswax or banana oil? (Ah, the good-ol days...) If so, I had the same series and, 30 years later, I still have the acquired immunities. So, are you protected? More than likely. Should you still be vigilant with universal precautions (wearing nitrile or latex gloves/ condoms, etc)? Yes. Just because you are vaccinated against something doesn't mean you won't ever get it.Congrads, and have a health life and a Merry Christmas! :) ~MM
