i 19 male.
live with my uncle and grandma who are hep b postive...
believe to be chronic hep b carriers
i had my vaccine when i'm very young
1st question: how long does 1 vaccine last?
2nd question: will i get infected if i had the vaccine alr?
i see sources say that hep b can be spread thr saliva
i believe when i'm young i did share saliva with them
3rd question: if a chronic hep b carrier spread to a person, will he/she get chronic or acute hep b virus
4th question: what are the chances of getting infected thr saliva?
( i more concern regarding chronic hep b virus instead of acute )
i don dare to go for a checkup (afraid of result) but soon i will go..
i don dare to tell my family that i do not want to share things with them because i scare i might hurt their feelings
but living with 2 hep b carrier makes me so scare that i might get infected as well (i concern tat i will spread to frens and gf )
because i really cannot afford to kena becuz i wan to sign bond with army.
i m really scare right now.
i really hope u guys can help me out here.
it will be best if ur a healthcare provider ( nurse or doctor )
Just go down to your local doctor , get a blood test and they will let you know if you are a carrier too and request hep b vacination.
It can spread by saliva.
Just means you keep getting infected and you need a hep b boost every now again....psssst.. aaaaaah. lol
