the vaccine should have been made next day but as long as hbsag is negative, use also hbv immune globulins so if you got infected hbsag appearance will be delayed

when you get infected you can delay infection by immune globlins (anti-hbsag) and get vaccine to work
the immune globulins are antibodies extracted from the blood of people immune to hbv so when you get infected they block hbsag

of course immune globulins can stop the very small quantity of virus when you get infected but once the virus reaches the liver it produces such hi quantities of hbsag that there is nothing left to prevent the infection.
