As long as you dont/didnt have any exposure to HCV infected blood, Id say your golden...but if its going to be in the back of your mind...I guess it wouldn't hurt to get retested...but It would just be for peace of mind.

About the influenza thing...Ive never heard of that being a reason for false positive tests.
