    About to start clinical roations but Hep B titer negative????

    Advertisements



    Hello AUA students,

    I took the step and got my score last week. I passed, but now i my Hep B titer results are negative, i have had all 3 Hep B shots and a recent booster also. Will they make me wait 6 months to complete the series to start the rotations?? or will they let me start as long as i am proactive about the matter and show them that im getting my booster shots on time? I really dont want to wait 6 months to start my rotations for such a small thing. It will push my match year to 2016. Please let me know if anyone else has any information on this matter. i am really worried and some peace of mind would be of great help.

    Thank you

    You should be fine if you can show proof of a recent booster.

    Proof of a recent booster and titer subsequent to that should be all you need. I am also considered a non-responder to the measles portion of the MMR received the booster, still only equivocal for immunity so now I have a letter saying don't give me anymore MMR I'm a non-responder. Small % of population can be non-responder to any vaccine.
