    Question Hepatitis A, B, & C

    Hello, there are 3 types of hepatitis a, b, and c. I remember getting a series of 3 shots for Hep B years ago. I have a couple questions...

    Can and should a person get shots for all 3 types of hepatitis?
    Does a booster shot have to be given for the Hep B vaccine?

    Vaccines are available for hepatitis A and hepatitis B only.

    There is NO vaccine for hepatitis C. Get tested if you haven't already.

    Boosters are recommended every ten years.
