If Anti-HBs Is Non-reactive Is It Really Not Vaccinated From The Start?
I want to ask. If anti-HBs is non-reactive, is it true that I wasn’t vaccinated from the start?
Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Hepatits B is an infectious disease by the hepatitis virus that attacks the liver. This is usually transmitted through fluids such as blood, fluid from the genitals such as sperm or body mucus. To find out the presence of infection from hepatiis B, physical examination is usually done by a doctor especially on symptomatic bodies such as fever, nausea, vomiting, upper right abdominal pain, or a yellow body
Furthermore, it is necessary to do a further examination with serology such as HBsAG and then see antibodies against hepatitis such as IgG and IGM.
Meanwhile, what you are asking about is anti-HBBS. It is about the body's immunity to hepatitis infection that can be obtained through vaccines and previous infections. If it is negative, you have never been infected and have never gotten a vaccine.
Consider the following things to prevent transmission, i.e.
Safe sexual intercourse
Avoid using syringes together
Avoid exposure to body fluids of patients who have positive hepatitis
