    There is no vaccine available yet for hepatitis C.

    If your vaccinated for hepatitis B (but have C) chances of developing antibodies to HBV are about 49%. So yes, if your vaccinated for hepatitis b and have c, you still have a chance of becoming infected. There are many known cases like this and it's not understood as to why some infected with hcv can build up antibodies to the hepatitis b vaccine, while others don't.

    if you have no hepatitis and are vaccinated against B, you should be okay not getting it.

    You are protected if you have the vaccine for Hep A and B, but you are supposed to get your blood titered to make sure. Sometimes the vaccine doesn't take. There is no vaccine for Hep C, but it is not sexually transmitted unless you have unusual sex practices (sticking pin in each other, etc.) . Hep C is transmitted via blood to blood through transfusions before 1992, tattoos, pnuematic vaccinations [military], needlesticks, IV drug use, sharing razors & toothbrushes with someone who is infected, dialysis, and possibly through snorting drugs and sharing the straw or dollar bill).

    Maybe. In some cases the vaccinations don't take, and in a lot more cases, the immunity wears off. You can find out about your own status by getting a blood test.

    there is no vaccine fro hep c. Hep A is bacterial and resolves with treatment. Hep B has a three shot course and can be prevented with vaccine. Hep C is tranmitted by blood and sexual contact, hep A is passed in fecal contamination, so wash those hands and keep your pants on, you'll be fine.

    There is always a possibility of getting those if your immune system is down . The vaccine is a preventative measure that boosts your immune system into a fighting mode should you be exposed and then you have a better chance of not getting it

    They are saying no, but in ten years will will hear something different. I got the vaccinated, and hopefully we do not get any bad news about the vaccination in ten years.

    not likely however new research is finding that some vaccines aren't good forever so If you at risk you should have a titer drawn to see if you are still immune
