Hepatits c

My friend's family has a history of hepatitis c and suffered 2 deaths because of this. How can this be prevented so that it is not transferred to other family members. Can you please tell me if there is any vaccination for hepatitis c like hepatitis a and b, if yes, then please suggest some hospitals in delhi who provides this.

There is no vaccine for hepatitis c till date. Prevention is by avoiding contact with hepatitis c infected blood.
