Have you been vaccinated for Hepatitis B? If yes, are you sure you are now protected?

Hepatitis B is a viral infection of the liver which has a tendency to damage the liver and lead not only to Chronic Liver Disease, but also predisposes to Liver Cancer. Although most of us have been vaccinated against Hepatitis B, not all will have sufficient levels of protective antibodies. To ascertain your protection against Hepatitis B, antibody levels should be checked and a booster dose of vaccination taken if they are found to be low.
