I just had a hepatitis B vaccination. A form I completed asked if I have a blood disorder. I ticked no. I have a thrombosed penis vein. Will I be ok?

The blood tests are getting better also. Blood testing is recommended by the nyc doh bureau of tuberculosis control. By the way, there are still some surviving TB expert docs out there.

Hepatitis b blood test shows both anti-hbs (i was vaccinated 13 years ago) and hbsag. Does that mean i was recently exposed or that I am chronic?

Hepatitis b blood test shows both anti-hbs (i was vaccinated 13 years ago) and hbsag. Does that mean i was recently exposed or that I am chronic?

The latter: It is likely, if the test results are confirmed, that you were a chronic carrier of HBV before you were vaccinated. Some people have both hbsag and antihbs and behave as other chronic carriers. ...Read more
