I am just wondering. Please no arguments. For those out there who may be learly of certain vaccines what are your thoughts on the HepB shot for health care workers? I am not anti-vaccine, but I do research the side effects and look at the adverse reports concerning them before making my choice.
I have been reading a lot about the HepB shot and the many reported problems with it (autoimmune, etc) and right now am not sure what I want to do concerning this vaccine before I start nursing school.
Of course I also don't want to get HepB either! Am I just being paranoid? Has anyone here had any bad reactions to the HepB vaccine?

None. Zero. Nada. I have had the series of 3 shots and not a problem in the least and no pain at all.
This was requested by only one of the several hospitals where we are doing clinicals and we could opt out of it if we signed a form stating we knew the risks and did not want the shot.
