The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) and The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) guidelines recommend vaccination of all persons with hepatitis C, against hepatitis A (HAV) and hepatitis B (HBV). Unless they are immune from before, this must be done, otherwise co-infection with hepatitis A or hepatitis B will result in acute liver disease. Regarded as effective and safe, both vaccines, HAV and HBV, can be taken separately or as a combination. Immunization schedule of Hepatitis B vaccine is three doses in a period of six months, while for hepatitis A vaccine, it is two doses in six months.
Being current with all immunizations is advisable since it offers lifelong protection. Apart from the vaccines for adults, persons with diseases of liver are advised to take flu shots also. Ensure you are aware of the latest guidelines recommended for immunization by speaking with your medical practitioner.
