Is she negative? If you as the male have hep b, and she does not, and it is documented, the risk is low for the baby. Some may not convert right away though, so she may be in the early stages of infection, and so covering the baby with hep b Immune Globulin at birth may be a good idea (just tell the OB about the exposure). Most likely risk would come from direct exposure from you to the baby, so immunize at birth. Read more...

I want protection from hepatitis b for my family, me 58, wife 50, son 29, son 28. Should we get vaccination directly or we need to get some tests?

It depends... If there is almost no risk (or no risk at all) that a person had gotten hepatitis b in the past, then that person can just get the vaccinations. For anyone who might have caught it in the past (for example, persons from asia), the person's blood should be tested first, to check for antibodies or the virus itself. If the blood tests are negative, then he can get the vaccine. Read more...
Reasonable thought. The Hepatitis B Vaccine is available in different locations through a variety of methods. Some pharmacist in my state will provide them as a drop in. Physicians are often required to have a physician patient relationship to provide any treatments (ongoing or new) that might entail an office visit within the last year. Make some calls.

How to treat Hepatitis B? I've got blood transfusion and they detected hep B in it. They couldn't test it earlier because it was emergency.

Need more info. More than 80% of the patients with hepatitis B infection recover on their own and eliminate the virus and are none the worse for it. You may wish to get tested in about six months to see if you have active infection or have recovered. God forbid you have chronic infection, it can be treated. Wish you good health. Read more...
