Re: Hepatitis B vs Hepatitis C

Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver

Hepatitis C is definitely the most serious and most common of the two diseases.

Hepatitis B is spread through blood or other body fluids in different ways

Hepatitis C is almost always chronic and is spread only through blood

There are vaccinations to help prevent Hepatitis A and B; however, no vaccine for Hepatitis C.
