Yes as long as LFTs: Yes you can as long as your liver function tests are within normal range and you are otherwise in good health and not on any meds. That means if you are an inactive carrier of hepb.
A 33-year-old member asked:

Yes but unlikely: Vaccinations aren't 100% effective but typically one is protected if the antibodies are high enough from the vaccination. A person vaccinated should be safe from infection but it can't be guaranteed.
