Hepatitis B is an infection that attacks the liver, and is caused by the HBV virus. This infection is divided into two, namely acute and chronic hepatitis B. Blood tests that are often used as parameters for hepatitis B infection are HBsAg and anti-HBs.
HBsAg positive means that the patient has been or is currently infected with the HBV virus. while positive or reactive anti-HBs can mean that the patient has been infected with the virus and has been overcome by the immune system, or you have received the hepatitis B vaccine. On the other hand, non-reactive anti-HBsAg means that you have never been infected with or the hepatitis B vaccine.
From your information, you do not need treatment for hepatitis B and can receive the hepatitis B vaccine.
So, I hope it's useful
