Hi guys. I'm of to Pattaya for the first time in May but haven't had a Hep B vaccine.

 

Does anybody now if there's a chance I can still get infected even if I wear a condom?

 

Any advice is appreciated.

Start the course of jabs anyway. You might be able to get a course of 2 our of 3 before you go.

 

As for Hep B concerns, you wont catch it with a condom.

 

Hep B is a hardy little infection. It can still stay active in dried blood after 2-3 hours (ie dont let them use your toothbrush in case they leave a slither of their infected blood on the brushes).

 

Other than that, dont worry mate. If you panic about everything, you will not enjoy what is going on.

 

Take enough precautions to be safe and go for it !

I'm not traveling 'till the 14th of May so if I time it right I should be able to get the first 2 jabs.

 

Thanks a lot for the info, you've put my mind at ease!

I got my first Twinrix (hep a/b) shot 3 days before my first trip. My doc told me that even just having the first shot would provide me with pretty good protection for duration the trip. I followed up and finished the course upon my return. I would recommend you do the same.

Yes deffinitly have the hep b jab and while your at it have a hep A jab as well

 

Trust me on this no matter what people tell you and as well meaning as they are you can catch hep B from kissing , depending on the individual it can remain highly contagious for a long long time.

 

If you don't believe me see you doctor I know this as fact

 

there is Hep A,B,C,D,E,F and G some of the others need Hep A and B to co exist in the body so make sure you have both jabs.

Remember, if you get your Hep A Jab you will be covered for a couple of years.

 

IF YOU GET YOUR BOOSTER JAB 1 YEAR AFTER the first injection, you are covered for 10 YEARS !

Thats some great advise. Question? can you get Hep A and Hep b done at the same time?

 

Yes, they are totally different types of viruses.

 

Once you have had your course of 3 Hep B jabs, you need to get your blood count checked every 5 years or so to make sure you have enough anti-bodies still in your system. If you dont, its just another booster jab.

Yes, you can get both at same time. As a matter of fact, several combination vaccines are available. Popular one in US is TWINRIX® (Combined hepatitis A and hepatitis B vaccine).

Pretty sure you're wrong on this, you're getting your hepatitis strains mixed up. To my knowledge it is transmitted in the blood, via saliva, body fluids or through small cuts.

 

maybe someone who knows can enlighten us

I stand corrected. My GP years ago told me HEP B can be caught through rimming. No wonder I dont see him anymore!

 

Here's a couple of sites I found to answer all questions;

Hi There,

 

I live in UK and I had just my fast track Hep A and B course done.

 

Key informations:

 

Vaccine:Twinrix adult HepA+HepB Manufacturer: GlaxoSmithKline

 

Age Group:18 & older. For a fast track 4 dose required (1ml/dose).

 

Dosing interval:

First dose: at an elected date

Second dose: 7 days later

Third dose: 21 days after the first dose

Fourth dose: 12 months after the first dose (kind of reminder cos fast track tend to drop faster as the nurse said)

 

After 2 month you can go for a blood test and you will know your response to the vaccine.

 

Proccess In UK for free:

 

Go to your surgery. At the reception just tell that you go for a travel and You need vaccination. They will lend u a holiday form(it contains which country u going, for how long etc). Fill it and give it back to them. After 2 or 3 days (they need time to gather information ) you can get an appointment. On the first visit the parctice nurse will discuss your needs and recommend other vaccine and check up your vaccination history then u will have your first dose.

 

useful links:

 

hepA and B vaccines: www.immunize.org/catg.d/p2081.pdf

Twinrix adult service manual:) : http://emc.medicines.org.uk/document.aspx?documentId=3189

 

 

 

Ps:What hepatitis B vaccination question isasked over and overand over again?

 

-Robin, it’s been a year since mypatient had his first hepatitis B shot.Should I start the series over again?

-Holy shot in the arm,Batman! How many times do I have to tell you? You don’t have torestart the series! As with all other

vaccines, you just continue fromwhere you left off.

 

I hope i could help,

 

Bye for now

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
