Hep c testing

I'm thinking of going in for rapid one. Questions though, what's the window after exposure? And I been vaccinated for hep B. That means I'll always have antibodies for that.

Would the hep C test turn positive because of the hep b vaccine?

Not at all,your test for Hep C will be too see if you have the Hep C antibodies,if you do have them,then they will give you a viral load count test to see if you cleared the virus or not.
