Being a carrier of hepatitis B or hepatitis C excludes service in the British forces. Im almost sure that this also applies to U.S. forces. But perhaps a Yank can clarify this question.

If you have any chronic disease such as Hep B, C, HIV, etc you are disqualified from entrance into the US military.

Well I3BrigPvSk I have been talking to recuriters in the U.S and they said that people with chronic Hepatits B can join, because like I said before, they soldiers in the U.S get vaccine for Hep B... also he said that they are going to accept more people who have it for the coming years I know i cant get vaccine nowadays to get rid of this but i hope it will come someday. So I will stick with the U.S army there you will go to a Medical Waiver which is higher set doctor you can ask for it when you enlist and he will check you and if he sees that its not effecting your health in anyway, as in pain and stuff like that he will give you the "Green Light" aka "Go Sign"

I truly hope it is as you said, even if I doubt it. The HB will influence your ability to serve where you will be exposed to other diseases. I have mostly worked with the corona viruses and with hemorrhagic fevers and how to respond to outbreaks. Your liver will be exposed to other pathogens, regardless if they are not lethal for others, they will influence your ability to work.

You don't understand "when you have hepatitis B the vaccine will not work"?

You ask a question and get answers from people who knows. But you do not accept their answers - why ask then ???
