The CDC has a handy tool for comparing hepatitis A, B, and C at http://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/Resources/Professionals/PDFs/ABCTable.pdf

Thanks for the info and support.
I did not see, but I read in other literature that if a person that has HepC gets exposed to Hep A, the reaction can be serious.  Is this so?
If so, then can the HepA  vaccine cause issue with someone with HepC?

Any time you have expose the liver to an additional problem, the liver is taxed, so having hep A on top of hep C could be serious. That is why hep A and B vaccination is a good thing for everyone with hep C - it protects us.
