Got a cut by cuticles during a pedicure in a public salon, what are the chances of catching hepatitis?

However, if the particular salon in question forgot to disinfect an instrument, a client would not expect to catch hepatitis A or B because she got vaccinated as a child (that's why we vaccinate kids).
