There are a number of other modes of transmission, some of which include: blood transfusion prior to 1992, when routine testing of the blood supply for hepatitis C began;other exposures to hepatitis C in a health care setting, such as needle stick injury; sexual exposure, although the rate of transmission of hepatitis C sexually is relatively low; transmission from a hepatitis C infected pregnant mother to fetus; body piercing or tattooing by an unregulated establishment.
