Any HBsAb is normal: Any antibody at all is "normal" after vaccination.

Don't worry about the specific numerical result, which can vary widely from one person to the next. In fact, usually such testing isn't done. Why were you tested? ...Read more

What is benefit of Synagis (palivizumab) for baby with TOF pre repair surgery?hes 3 months old pink tet no other issues. Is it necessary at this point in RSV season
Important question: A 3 month old TOF patient could develop life threatening bronchiolitis due to RSV and even if it was mild, would make the kid unsuitable for surgery for a significant period afterward.Treated infants can still get RSV but it would be mild. If you can get it approved, its a no brainer to me. I've watched far too many infants struggle with this disease over several decades. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is fever after every vaccintaion normal? Does it signal a weak immune system? I'm concerned because my son always seems to get one after a shot.
Depends on vaccine: Not all vaccines cause fever, some more likely than others. For example the Dtap vaccine and the VZV and MMR vaccines which are live vaccines are more likely to have a fever associated with them. It does not signal a weak immune system, in fact it most likely means the pt's immune response to the vaccine is good. Treat the fever for its uncomfortable symptoms. ...Read more

Despite having had the whooping cough vaccine as a child, I still got a mild case of it at age 7. How does this happen?
How diagnosed?: Immunity to even repeated pertussis vaccine can wane. Admittedly, at age 7 most children that have had a full series of Pertussis vaccine (TDaP or similar) are protected from Pertussis. You were young, but was a Pertussis swab obtained from your nose? Any antibody tests done to check your immunity since then? I say this because it is impossible to diagnose pertussis accurately without those. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
