      Vaccination against Hep A and B is definitely recommended for all those
      with Hep C infection. Both are safe and without any after effects.
      Hep A vaccine is to be given in 2 doses six months apart, this gves a 10
      yr plus immunity.
      Hep B is given as 0, 1 , 6 months with a booster at 5 yrs or 0, 1, 2
      months with a booster at 1 yr. Immunity again is 10 yr plus after the
      booster dose. It is also seen that some people with Hep C do not take up
      the Hep B vaccine hence antibody levels against HBV should be done to
      confirm the vaccine uptake.
