immunology?

i had a full blood test for hep. b they only tested for Anti HBs - (Antibody to Hepatitis B surafce Antigen, HBsAb)

Result:  >1000 mIU/mL

Thats just what i got.

Question:

Would i have to do another test for Surface Antigen or to test for another antibody like Core antibody?

Or it doesnt matter as long as you're immune?

Help pls. thanks,
