re-vaccine children, good values of hbsab are 250miu/ml or higher.the unit for antibodies is miu/ml, it is useless to convert to other units

Can i participate unprotected sex with my wife?  
yes

How many doses have to be given to my child as revaccine?

check with local pharmacy or family doctor, products may be different to one another

yes they will reach good levels

the low antibodies are due to the bad vaccines used until today, they should have hbsab and hbcab, hopefully these new vaccines will be available soon

booster dose will make antibodies high again

no i was talking about vaccines for best immune response vaccines must be loaded with hbcag and hbsag to have an immune response hbcab and hbsab.the vaccine used today is very old and uses only hbsag....today we know that a high hbcab antibody clears hbv in acute infection and make possible to hbsab to appear.
thsi new type of vaccine will solve the issue of vaccine non response, a percentage of about 10% doesnt respond to today's hbv vaccine

they just need another dose of vaccine to have hbsab>10miu/ml, a very good protective range is above 200miu/ml

the reason of low hbsab is these vaccines are bad to make an immune response, you need to recheck hbsab about every 10 years because antibody can even be lost
