CDC recommends everyone at risk and those born from 1945-1965 get a one-time test for hepatitis C.
The hepatitis C virus was first isolated in 1989, and a test to detect exposure to HCV has only been available since 1992. The hepatitis C virus is very easily transmitted by contact with infected blood. Anyone who received a blood transfusion or other blood products prior to 1992 may have unknowingly been exposed to HCV and should be tested.
Ask your doctor for the test. If you do not have health insurance visit the HCV Testing Site Locator to find an HCV screening site near you.
No one is immune to hepatitis C.
