Vaccine for hep B does it mean i woudnot never get the virus even if i exposed to it from patient with virus?is there also booster vaccine and when?
You need to get the: whole vaccine sequence in order to be protected. It has a series of 2 boosters in short sequence from the initial vaccine. Your body's immune system needs to recognize it, to react to it, and if you're missing the sequencing, then you're inadequately protected. It's not like tetanus shot, where you need a booster every 10 years. You just need to complete it once. Adolescent dosing is different. ...Read more

Vacicnes-no: Coughing can last 7-10 days from a virus. Steroids indicate there was probably wheezing as well. If the cough is the same as when steroids started then be seen again to be sure the wheezing is gone. I prefer not to vaccinate until the illness is resolved. I do not llke to overtax the immune system. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible to be exposed to flu virus in small enough amounts to not get sick but develop some antibodies? Not to undermine vaccine. Curious.

Better to get the vaccine! ...Read more

Yes, you can.: Since vaccines are merely pieces of antigen that your immune system reacts to and develops its own antibodies to, there should be no scientific reason why you would be unable to receive a new vaccine in the future with a higher number of valences. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can I get a blood test for herpes virus if i had chickenpox vaccine as a child. Wouldn't it come out positive?
Should flu vaccine be taken annually is necessary for us? Who always can't predict the right strain for vaccine, we still suffer from the novel virus.
Get shot annually: The flu virus changes, so it's important to get vaccinated every year. The cdc usually does a pretty good job of predicting which viruses will be circulating.

If shingles is caused by chicken pox virus,why do they say let your kid get chicken pox or get the vaccine? Wouldnt that increase your risk of shingle
Risk benefit ratio: Prior to the vaccine we had about 10,000 hospital admissions & 50 deaths/yr with chickenpox. Deaths have dropped to none in the vaccinated group. The frequency of shingles after the shot is less than that of wild disease. Shingles emerges when the persons immune system fails to keep it in hibernation. Though nasty, it is not a fatal disease but would be more frequent without the vaccine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
