If HBsAB strong enough, not necessary for HBV.

No one is officially immune to hepatitis after being vaccinated until the vaccination series is completed and a titer is done to verify immunity. Having the titer done can be just as important as having the vaccinations.

I think there are currently 7 different types of Hepatitis (A thru G) but only Hepatitis A & B have effective vaccines available. So the other types of hepatitis can still be contracted even if you have immunity to A & B.

I think immunity to HBV may provide protection from Hepatitis D (Delta Virus) because I believe the Delta Virus can only survive in someone who is already infected with HBV……not really sure on that.
