should I have a vaccine

Oct 24, 2001

I believe I have hepatitis c but I've tested and it was negative, will it harm me I've i have hepatitis and i receive a vaccine? thanks a lot

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

There is no vaccine for HCV.The negative test means that you have never been infected,but we cannot protect you.You need to continue the safe sex,no needles sharing,and blood precautions, that have you negative till now.Or it was just good luck?If that is the case, start prevention today.
