Can HepB vaccine cause false positive?
Our study confirms that transient HBsAg positivity can occur in patients following HBV vaccination. The results suggest this positivity is unlikely to persist beyond 14 days post-vaccination.
Can I drink after Hep B vaccine?
Answer: There are no recommendations related to alcohol causing any effects or increased risk of reactions so there should be no problem drinking alcohol after the Hep A vaccine.
How long does hepatitis B vaccine last in the body?

What does a negative titer mean?
A titer may be used to prove immunity to disease. A blood sample is taken and tested. If the test is positive (above a particular known value) the individual has immunity. If the test is negative (no immunity) or equivocal (not enough immunity) you need to be vaccinated.
Can you lose immunity to Hep B?
All subjects responded with anti-HBs (mean titer, 143 mIU/mL). The duration of immunity after vaccination against HBV is not known. Ten percent of the patients who receive and respond to vaccination lose anti-HBs after 5 years and 50% lose anti-HBs after 10 years.
Can HBsAg be wrong?
If the “HBsAg” was positive, this means that you are either chronically infected with hepatitis B or were recently infected. If only the “anti-HBc” was positive, it is most likely that you either had a “false-positive” test or are immune to hepatitis B infection (had hepatitis B infec- tion sometime in the past).
When do you test for Hep B antibodies after vaccination?
Testing should be performed 1–2 months after administration of the final dose of the vaccine series using a method that allows determination of a protective concentration of anti-HBs (10 mIU/mL or higher).
