hepatitis vaccination for hiv+

Question

does hiv+ and hepatitis B carrier need vaccination for hepatitis A and C? Thank you.

Answer

Hello and thank you for your post.

First off, there is no vaccination for hepatitis C.

All persons with HIV (or gay, HIV negative men) should be offered vaccinations for hepatitis A and hepatitis B; this is a US national guideline recommendation. Since you already have HBV infection, you'll only need the two-shot HAV vaccination series.

Hope this helps, BY
