Cured, but...: If a person's Hep B surface antigen is nonreactive, that means the lab does not find pieces of the surface of the virus. If her Hep B virus PCR is negative, that means the lab does not find the virus's DNA (genes). If the core antibody is reactive that means her immune system REMEMBERS being infected with Hep B. She is cured, but some viral DNA might be attached to her own human DNA in her liver. ...Read more

Can one get rubella after a vaccine? What are the chances of a vaccinated individual getting rubella?

Possibly: 5% of people do not respond to the 1st dose of MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine. A 2nd dose is thus given to catch this small group of non responders. Unlike other vaccines then, the second dose is not a booster--it is another chance for those 5 % who did not make antibodies the first time. If you were a non responder exposed to rubella after your first dose--you could catch the disease! ...Read more
