Thread: Hep Vaccine

    Hep Vaccine

    Is it true that once your bub receives the Hepatitis vaccination, they will always test positive? This really concerns me. I don't like the idea of putting disease into a perfectly healthy child.

    Hi mamajohnson,

    Are you thinking about the Hep A or Hep B vaccine?

    Either way your child would not actually have the disease so a blood test would only show their immunity levels to the disease not that they actually had the disease.

    For a detailed discussion on vaccination in general many parents on our forum have found this book helpful: The Parents Concise Guide to Childhood Vaccinations.

    Warm wishes,
    LJ

    You may find this information about the hep B vaccine helpful.

    Note that the hep B vaccine contains no live virus.
