Hepatitis Test results

I am confused I am starting a job in a hospital and I got checked for Hepatitis B.  A negative came back on HEP B SURFACE AB/IMMUNITY
HB SURFACE AB.

REACTIVE On Hepatitis A because I was vacinated before I went to culinary school.  

HEP B CORE ANTIBODY (HBCAB)
HB CORE (TOTAL)  NON REACTIVE.

I am getting vacinated for Hepatitis B 3 series.

The reason I am asking is in the HB CORE (TOTAL) that NON REACTIVE result may not indicate that I was not infected with HBV.  But I am getting vacinated for Hep. B.  I am confused.

Thanks

I know that shots protect you but do my test results say that I have it. What does non reactive mean?
