• Hepatitis B
  • Vaccine Recommendations

If you want to test and vaccinate your patient for hepatitis B on the same day, does it matter if you test or vaccinate first?

Yes. You should draw the blood first and then administer the first dose of vaccine, as transient HBsAg-positivity has been detected after a dose of HepB (see related question).
