if the patient who has hepa B want this vaccination how much it will cost?

patients who has hepa b are not given by the doctors option for vaccination. Because vaccination is only a prophylactic or preventive treatment for the liver. Different drug/s would be prescribed by the doctor if a patient aquired hepa b already like antivirals [azyclovir..]

I just want to ask if those people who have Hepa B can still work because as far as I know, those people I know who have that illness are are finding it hard to a have a job and get a normal life. How can they live if they wont be given a chance to prove that they are still normal. I hope people all over the world can still give a chance for those people who want to live and work even if already infected by the disease. We never know what they been going through to survive, Tablets give them a chance to live a normal life. Thanks so much.

you're right dude! people who has a hbv can also need a normal life not to be discriminate! having hbv is fuc'in hard to accept when someone discovered during their medical examination and cause of it's failur!, Working expiriences and credits are fuc'in great but you're not totally fited to work because of the damn virus. some person are getting unfaithful to the god, because of the discrimination and lost of their dreams, totally insane... but we don't know God there is a special gift for those who have hbv. God is great!
