Hepatitis C to G

There are no known vaccinations against any of the following, to the best of my knowledge at the time of this writing.

Most are transmitted only by blood-to-blood transactions. The only one that seems to be transmittable by contaminated water is hepatitis E. Notably, unlike HIV, hepatitis A and hepatitis B, these forms of hepatitis seem much less easily transmitted by sex.

Below, I attempt to give a brief synopsis.

Hepatitis C

For most people, hepatitis C is not easy to get. It's spread via blood-to-blood transactions.

If you get hepatitis C, it is usually a much worse disease than other forms of hepatitis.

Tests for hepatitis C became available only in 1990, so if you received a blood transfusion from a hospital before then you should check for the antibodies. Hepatitis C often takes more than 10 years to show symptoms of liver damage, and it is very important that people infected take care of themselves such as no or low alcohol consumption.

Hepatitis D

Hepatitis D cannot replicate well, and is generally found in conjunction with another hepatitis virus, usually B. Hepatitis D is spread by blood-to-blood transactions.

Hepatitis E

Hepatitis E is known to be transmitted by both blood-to-blood transactions and water contaminated with fecal matter. There is no known vaccination as of the time of this writing. The virus is not well understood. From the information I've read, it seems to have acute symptoms but not longterm ones. However, this may be subject to change.

Hepatitis F

There is no hepatitis F, from what I can tell.

Hepatitis G

Hepatitis G is named after someone whose initials were GB and represents an old blood sample of an infected person. It is a virus that has existed a long time but was isolated and identified only in 1995, though it was suspected about 5 years before.

Hepatiius G is transmitted by blood-to-blood transactions. It is usually associated with hepatitis C infection. It is rarely found on its own.
