Customer Question

Thanks for all your help, Dr. David. Continuing the same topic, I've been vaccinated for both Hep A and Hep B, but was wondering if it's possible to accidentally spread any of those viruses from a cut I might have in a basketball game or something, to
someone else who isn't immune. Once your blood has immunity, that's for you, but is it still possible that someone else won't have immunity, and can then get the virus A or B from me ? Or is the immunity in my blood transferable....making it safe in case I
bleed by accident ?

no, it is not possible for you to spread the virus from a cut from a basketball game.
you have been vaccinated
these viruses need blood to blood contact to spread.
you can just spread them in a basketball game.
