The vaccine should protect you. If you are the very very nervous type and want to be absolutely sure that the vaccine "took" and that you are immune, your doctor--any regular gp or clinic--can test for hep b and its antibodies. one tube of blood, a few bucks, a few days wait, and you will know for sure. If you are indeed immune--as I bet you are--you can relax. You are not, then, at risk.
