Yes: Nothing is 100%. Hepatitis b is a bad disease and we hope if you do get it after the vaccine that it will be a much milder case. I have not had a patient with hepatitis b who has had the vaccine, nor have any patients that I have given the vaccine caught hepatitis b, that i know of. I have practiced in the same community for 41 years.
