We give both vaccine and HBIg. But if we can test mother within one weeks we can give only vaccine and wait for the results of the mother. If mother is positive give HBIg

Answer is C. The transmission of hep B virus can be prevented in 95% of cases of infants born to HBs-Ag mothers by early active (immunization) and passive immunoprophylaxis (HBIG) preferably within the 12 hours.
