Will people be infected after receiving hepatitis B vaccine?
Whether you will be infected with hepatitis B virus after hepatitis B vaccine depends on whether hepatitis B protective antibodies, that is, hepatitis B surface antibodies, are produced after hepatitis B vaccine. In general, the positive rate of surface antibody can reach more than 95% after three injections of hepatitis B vaccine.

That is to say, if the surface antibody titer is very high, then this kind of exposure to hepatitis B virus is difficult to be infected. But if no protective antibodies are produced, in this case, even if the hepatitis B vaccine is not given, it is still possible to be infected in this case. There is also a situation where even though hepatitis B vaccine has been given, there is a virus mutation in the hepatitis B virus, so there is a risk of infection.

There are also protective antibodies, but the antibodies are very low and the patient has been exposed to a large amount of virus, so the antibodies are not enough to neutralize the virus. In this case, there is a risk of infection.

Therefore, it is not that everything will be fine after the hepatitis B vaccine. After the vaccine, we must test: first whether antibodies are produced, the level of the second antibody, if the antibody is at a relatively low level, at this time, it is recommended to be safe.

That is to say, when the hepatitis B vaccine is injected: first, you must pay attention to whether there is any allergic reaction to the vaccine after the injection, and you cannot leave immediately after the hepatitis B vaccine.

If the adult is below 38 degrees, generally drink more warm water. The third is to pay attention to the production of protective antibodies after hepatitis B vaccine. In general, after three shots of hepatitis B vaccine, 95% of people will develop protective antibodies, but it is true that 5% of them.

Although the whole course of hepatitis B vaccine is given, there is not enough antibody production. This situation needs to be repeated. The whole course of hepatitis B vaccine injection.
