Most unlikely that you will have Hepatitis if your HBsAb is 66 iu/l.
"People who have been exposed to the hepatitis B virus and who have not been vaccinated should receive hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) within 72 hours of exposure, and a dose of hepatitis B vaccine as soon as possible or within 7 days of the exposure from their general practitioner or local emergency department."
Just my opinion.

You are safe even without the booster because antihbs level >10 iu/ml is considered to be enough for immune protection. No need to check hbsag, do not waste your time.
