Can I get Hep B on the same day as 2 step PPD? Thanks

0 Hey,

I am going to do my 2 step PPD shots and have decided to hold off on live vaccines like MMR and Virucella which can cause a false negative but will need after the PPD...

My question is I looked around and know that Tdap can be taken the same day right since it's inactive what I really want to is if I can also take my Hep B with the PPD for nursing school??? Can a Hep B or Tdap interfere and cause a false positive or am I good and should I take the Hep B too which is inactive and recombinant will the recombination act as a live vaccine or am I good? Thanks yes or I?
