Hi there,
The complete vaccine series induces formation of protective antibody levels in more than 90-95% of people. The protection lasts for at least 20 years and is possibly lifelong. This vaccine is very effective. A person who has responded to the vaccine series will demonstrate a positive result for the hepatitis B surface antibody thus you can check the vaccine efficacy. But no vaccine is 100% effective. A person can get hepatitis B even after being completely vaccinated. Avoid unprotected sex.It is best to consult a healthcare professional and get tested for hepatitis B.Keep me posted.
Best wishes and regards!
