In brief: No

Hepatitis c is a different disease than hepatitis a and hepatitis b.
Thus, having previous exposure to hepatitis a and being immunized for hepatitis b will have no effect on the severity of a hepatitis c infection.

In brief: Irrelevant

Different viruses altogether. Vaccination against a and b protects against a and b; no effect on c at all.
On the other hand active infection with a or b makes for a sicker patient if co-infected with hepc
