I had been vaccinated in childhood for hepatitis b, and before complete 3 doses of vaccination, my status was hbsag non reactive, while I was 2 years old, now I am 24, just from some routine blood tests, my reports read that I am hbsag reactive. Liver function test are normal except sgot= 38 and sgpt= 55, liver fibroscan (elasticity measurement-liver stiffness value is 5.3 kpa). Hepatitis B e antibody is reactive with value 0.010 hepatitis B e antigen is non reactive with value of 0.31. Qualitative HBV DNA Reports are awaited…. What is the current status of my infection, is it acute or chronic? How is it possible vaccine dint work for me and now I am hbsag reactive? Can the reports be wrong? I am very much worried……please explain.

Vaccination effects are only for three years and afterwards you have to take booster dosage and I will suggest you to follow up with reports for further guidance.
