No: If they vaccinated for hepatitis B they don,t get the disease.
Dr. Rajesh Kumar

Risk is low: After the series of 3 vaccines to complete hepatitis B vaccination the chances of getting hepatitis B is low. However no vaccine is 100% effective. Therefore if worried u shd have them checked for anti HBs antibodies and if they are positive for those then u know with certainty that they have the immunity for hepatitis B.
