Hep C now with A

HCV load 1441140, log10RNA 6.16 HVC loadInter 1 IU/ml=5.2 Hcv RNA copies/ml Is this high? Now positive with HepA, does this cause a higher risk or cirrosis or liver ca? And should i get a hep B vaccine?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Your HCV viral load is about average. In most cases, HAV infection is self limited and unlikely to accelerate HCV disease. If you are not HBV immune, you should get vaccinated.
