    No one who has recently been vaccinated with either the polio vaccine or the Hep vaccine is contagious to anyone. else.

    A person who was vaccinated against polio prior to 2000 may have received the oral polio vaccine, which was made from a live polio virus. Present day polio vaccines are made from a killed polio virus

    .There are several injectable Hepatitis A vaccines. None contain a live virus.

    No keep him away for 3 months at least.

    I wouldn't have thought so, vaccine recipients can shed any live viruses in the vaccine for a week or two afterwards.
