You can protect yourself by getting vaccinated against hepatitis A and B. There is no vaccination against hepatitis C! it has  recommended to take vaccination against hepatitis A and B. However, if you've already had hepatitis A or B (and possibly haven't even noticed it!) you will be immune to renewed infection. That's why before getting vaccinated you should always get a check-up with your doctor to see whether you already have hepatitis A/B antigens (or to see if you still are immunised from an earlier vaccination!). There's no need to put an unnecessary burden on your immune system, especially if you are already HIV positive.

There is a difference between “active” and “passive” forms of vaccination. In an active vaccination harmless virus fragments (inactivated or “dead” vaccine) stimulate the body to produce its own antigens. The incubation period for these antigens lasts around one month and they generally offer a ten year period of immunity. In a passive vaccination antigens are directly injected into the body. Immunity is immediate but the period of immunity only lasts from one to three months.
