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.

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