Should I take a vaccine to improve my immunity?

Question: I went to hospital 2 weeks ago and now have received the results of my immunity test. I don’t understand what these mean. Is there a problem that I should know about? I was prepared for the test – no meds etc. Should I consider to take a vaccine in the future? Please help.

1. HAV-IgG to Hep A – 11.48 (reactive).

2. Mumps – 47 (positive).

3. Rubella – 46.2 (reactive).

4. Measles – >300 (positive).

Thank you very much for you assistance.

Answer: Hello. Thank you for your question. Immunity concerns have been more in the forefront today what with the corona virus situation and more. Based on the info you have provided it is my opinion that you have no need to worry despite the results turning positive. For instance, for hepatitis, the virus that is considered to be dangerous is hepatitis B, all the same, you may need to take hepatitis immunization. For the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) mostly a large number of people that are tested tend to have traits of it not unless you are symptomatic, there is no need for alarm, but again I would highly recommend you take the vaccine for the same.

I was diagnosed with hepatitis, could it not be cirrhosis?

I was diagnosed with hepatitis when I went to the er for extreme flu symptoms. I had already stopped drinking at that point because of been so sick with the flu. The Dr only caught the hepatitis as I was about to leave. He said it should be monitored. So my question is, would they have seen that I have cirrhosis at that point? It says hepatitis on the discharge papers. Does that mean that I don’t have cirrhosis? I hope you understand my question. Lol
