Hello I’ve Just recently joined this online space and have also very recently been diagnosed with hepatitis b. I’m 22 and a college student and have lived at home while I’ve been studying as my home is near my university.
The problem is now in a few months as part of my course I will have to move out of home as I will be moving to begin some work placement and will be sharing a house with a few people from my course that will be working in the same company as me.
I live in a country where hep b would only have been introduced into the childhood vaccine series in the past 10 years so it’s extremely unlikely that my housemates will have received the vaccine.
I’m just quite stressed about this situation as I haven’t even told my friends about my status only my family know but they have all been vaccinated now and I just have a fear of exposing people like the people I will be moving in with for work experience to the virus.
So my question is: Must I inform the people that I will be sharing a house with of my status before moving in to allow them time to get vaccinated?
I really appreciate all reply’s
