In brief: Depends on Age
Per the cdc, if you acquired hepatitis a before the age of 11, you can still donate.
However, if you had hepatitis a after the age of 11, then no, you cannot donate blood. Check with your local blood donation center/bank to be sure.

In brief: Hep A
Is usually an acute illness that reverses without consequence to blood donation as opposed to b & c.
Come back next year after you get well.
