it means your immune system came into contact with either Hepatitis A virus or the Hep A vaccine, and that you have some antibody protection against Hepatitis A.

If it is sufficient protection to fight off a Hep A infection, i cannot tell (ask a doctor). Perhaps also consider getting protection against Hep B as well, if not already done so.

(And of course, begin protected against one or two hepatitis virus types does not make you immune against other viruses such as hepatitis C)

Sometime, Last July 20,2011.. I go to a laboratory room to have my hepa A test. I already recieved my result last July 21 and it results HAV IgG Positive. I will apply for a job , can this be a reason that my employer will not hire me? Is this case harmful? is this HAV IgG positive is an advantage?

  Help me.. I dont know what case it is..
