Hepatitis C
Jul 24, 2012

I am signed up for Phlebotomy classes starting Aug2012. I have chronic hep c, I need to have a hep c titer done. Will they find out that I still carry the virus. Can I be barred from the class if I show positive. I live in McHenry county Illinois Thank you

Response from Dr. McGovern

You may have virus in your blood but that should not deter you from your job. You can also get treated to cure your HCV.
