I had the Hepatitis B series vaccinations when I was a child.. now I am trying to get into college and have to have paperwork done for the field of study that I am doing. My doctor sent me to have blood work done to check the immunity of my Hep B vaccinations.. my blood work came back that I am not immune to them so now I have to have the series done all over again! Has this happened to anyone else? And should I be worried about being exposed to people who have or have had Hep B, not knowing that my body wasn't immune to the vaccinations?
