Heh. what does it mean if somebody goes to donate blood and they say that their blood is positive for the Hepatitis B antigen, "anti-HBc". Can you get this by starting your HepB series shots but forgetting to finish it? Thanks

Is this something that concerns yourself or someone close to you?

As per the Terms of Service we can not give medical advice and this could be seen as medical advice because it is someone close to you.
