Yes you can take Hepatitis-B vaccination for precaution.

Adults at increased risk of acquiring HBV infection should make sure they are vaccinated against Hep B. This includes people who:

Have multiple sex partners
Have a sexually transmitted disease (STD)
Are men who have sexual contact with other men
Inject drugs or share needles, syringes, or other drug equipment
Live with someone who has chronic Hep B
Are exposed to blood on the job
Are hemodialysis patients
Travel to countries with moderate to high rates of Hep B

If you don`t fall into any of these categories but want to make sure you help protect yourself from HBV infection, you can also get vaccinated.
