In brief: Depends

It depends, most people who complete the whole HBV vaccination schedule will show evidence of HBV antiboies.

There are some individuals who are incapable of responding with antibody formation to hepatitis B surface antigen (which confers immunity). Many feel that these are same people who develop chronic hep B with natural infection.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Probably not

The Hepatitis B Vaccine is a three shot series.
Receiving only 1 shot with give some people protection, but the number of people with immunity increases with each booster.
