Yes: You can't be vaccinated against hepatitis c because there's no vaccine. Hepatitis a and b vaccines are good vaccines, but no vaccine is 100% effective. After being vaccinated, you can find out whether you're protected with blood tests: total HAV antibody for a and hbsab for b. If those are negative, repeat or booster vaccination should be considered.

A and b: There's no 100% guarantee, but they're generally very effective. There is no immunization yet for hepatits c.
