    Now that I'm entering midde age, every 6 months I get a full blood test, stuff like blood sugar, vitamin levels, cholesteral levels etc, theres a long list of stuff i get back and its included in my med insurance so why not, anyway last year the doc says my test came back and showed that i was not resistant to Hep B and he said do you want the shots, there are 3 shots over about 5 months and i had my last one today. Now I'm wondering if i really had to get these shots?...On the net it mostly says if you are at high risk you should get it....but i'm married, dont travel much, not a health worker etc

    Generally only something you'd get if you're at risk, say working in a law enforcement, medical or medical research environments.

    I don't reply to posts by users who have had government nanoprobes injected into their body.

    Taking the risk of a life debilitating disease vs getting 3 shots and not being at risk.
    What's the debate exactly? Any good reason NOT to get shot?

    No particular reason to not get it, that I'm aware of anyway.

    Over here anyway, it just isn't one of the standard vaccinations, unless you work in a high risk environment.

    No big deal... doesn't hurt to have it. I have hep A and B because I travel to China every so often. Now you're protected for a long, long time.
