If you have hep C you can and should have hep A and B vaccinations.
You should always ask medical questions to your doctor.
Have you had the HCV RNA by PCR test yet to confirm you are currently infected?
I see you have had the antibody test but that doesn’t necessarily mean you are infected only that you may have been infected in the past or it could mean you do have hep c virus in your blood now.
About 25% of people are able to beat the virus on their own without treatment but will still test positive for the virus.
The only way to know your infection status is to have the HCV RNA test. The next step would be to get treated and cured of the hep c virus.
Discuss this with your doctor.
It’s not for me it is for my friend. He doesn’t have insurance and I just want him to get vaccinated because he is living in a halfway house and why wait if he can get vaccinated? The doctors really don’t have a clue.
He can and should be vaccinated and hep B is a series of shots so he has to come back a couple of times to complete the series.
There is no reason to delay being vaccinated because someone has hep c it is actually recommended to be vaccinated against A and B if you have hep C. Having one form of hepatitis is a reason for vaccination as you can not afford multiple hepatitis infections.
Have you had your HCV RNA test yet to confirm if you currently have hep C?
He was tested no results yet hopefully tomorrow. I’m getting my vaccines tomorrow.
