Hi Lenra,
You may have a positive anti-HBsAg report if you have been vaccinated for HBV.
But variation in the reports of HBsAg reactivity is a fallacy of either lab. I would advise getting the test from some standardised lab along with HBeAg, anti-HBeAg, anti-HBcAg and viral load study which will not only confirm the results but also tell you prospective of management if really reactive.
Take Care!
