Here are other risk factors I’d add to the list:
- Persons born in the years 1945-1965
- Anyone whose mother may have had viral hepatitis at the time of birth
- Veterans and military service personnel, particularly those who served during the Vietnam War era
- Healthcare workers and anyone whose occupations involves potential blood-to-blood contact
- Persons with tattoos, specifically if tattoos were acquired in unsterilized setting, such as in prison
- Anyone who may have shared blood with someone known to have viral hepatitis, such as during vampire-play, blood oaths, sharing of personal hygiene utensils, etc.
- Persons whose sexual partners were possibly infected with viral hepatitis, especially hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection; hepatitis C infection has a low sexual transmission rate among heterosexual, monogamous partners, but it is reasonable to request screening for peace of mind
