Apinkston - I have made a DR. appt. for this Tuesday after class. She left me a voice mail message and said it is not uncommon that people don't develop antibodies. It is so odd, my body has made antibodies for other things but not the Hep B.
I believe my options are getting a booster and or then starting the series over again. I have heard that works for some people and others, well they never develop the antibodies for Hep. B.
I always, always follow universal precautions for each and every patient but it is just nice to know that you have a vaccine that protects you in the that "just in case" thing. Ya know?
I use to work at a Hospital in L&D as a Patient Care Assistant. I was always in contact with blood and bodily fluids, but I always used universal precautions .
As of right now I don't work and am just going to college full time, I begin my clinical work in Feb. so I have a little bit of time before I'll be seeing patients again.
Well, thanks for responding. I will keep you all updated!
