Vaccination: Completing the 3 shot vaccination series provides the best protection, protecting 96% of people receiving the vaccine. Not sharing blood (via injection drug use or shared razors) and using condoms with sex will also reduce the risk.

A 31-year-old female asked:
Do I have full protection from hep b if my titer is 30? What percentage of protection does it offer? Would titers of 100 provide higher percentage of protection?

100% protection if there is any detectable antibody at all. You couldn't get hepatitis B if you tried.
