are hepatitis vaccines 100% effective , if you have all the vaccines in your body can you still be at risk of getting it ?

Not 100%: No vaccine is 100% effective, but if you have a positive total HAV antibody and a positive hbsab after being vaccinated against hepatitis a and b, respectively, then you're very likely to be fully protected.
