According to the CDC<br><br>
Infants:<br>
dose 1 16%-40%<br>
dose 2 80%-90%<br>
dose 3 98%-100%<br><br>
Teens and adults<br>
dose 1 20%-30%<br>
dose 2 75%-80%<br>
dose 3 90%-95%<br><br>
So he is either in the 80-90% group that is fully protected or the 10-20% group that is not protected.

How many of the vaccinated were exposed to hep b vs the unvaccinated? How many caught it and how many didn't?<br><br>
I haven't been able to find this information, and without that, it's really rather impossible to tell how many (if any) shots will "protect", and again, for how long?

FWIW- vaccines do not provide immunity. Immunity is found in the memory cells of the body. There are no known ways to test for actual immunity, beside injecting a human with the actual disease and seeing what happens.

Well, that would depend on the individual. My dad had all 3 shots as an adult, and 3 years later he showed zero immunity. When his nurse told him that, she said that it happens all the time - it even happened to her.

That proves the vaccines don't work, and if you delve a little further into what the test results actually test, you might find that their bodies were healthy enough to not only fight the disease/toxins, but also rid themselves of them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

<div style="font-style:italic;">Well, there are titer tests, which test the amount of antibodies. Kind of like an immunity test.</div>

They only measure antibodies, which prove the body is actively fighting 'something', and in most cases the toxins injected.<br><a href="http://www.mansfield.ohio-state.edu/~sabedon/black17.htm" target="_blank">http://www.mansfield.ohio-state.edu/...on/black17.htm</a>

Our DAN! doctor said that the Hep B shot is not known to give immunity in ones body longer than 7 years but usually less. My 3 1/2 y/o ASD/Mercury Poisoned son received the Hep B shots on schedule and was tested for all of his vaccine titers before starting IVIG in March and has 0 immunity to Hep B. It was a waste of a shot and had I known you can only contract Hep B by drug use or being sexually active (also of course if the mother is Hep B positive) then I would have NEVER given those shots to him. We did not vaccinate my youngest son who is now 2. We decided that when he turns 2 we would give him one vaccine a year starting with the single measels vaccine. We gave it to him 2 weeks ago and he had a reaction to it and his gut is now a complete mess. No more for him either. -Crystal<br><a href="http://www.sashasrecovery.com" target="_blank">www.sashasrecovery.com</a>
