Q: Did I get hepatitis C from air gun vaccinations?

Although it is possible in theory, there is not enough evidence to confirm this as a risk factor. Attempts to obtain service connection by claiming air gun infection during military service have been controversial. Please see the Veterans Benefits Administration's letter on this issue.
