Probably not. Hepatitis B is contracted from blood directly into your system. blood to blood transmission. Usually considered from needles or sharp instruments.

A 24-year-old male asked:

Can i get hepatitis b even if I am vaccinated?

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.
