Dear customer,

Please read the below articles:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19880567

http://rheumatology.oxfordjournals.org/content/38/10/978.full

Therefore till date it cannot be said with certainty and the evidence is inadequate to know whether there is an association between hepatitis B vaccine and onset or exacerbation of SLE.

Take care.

Please rate the answer with a positive rating.

Thanks.
