ETA - I just saw your post above. I'm glad you are thinking rationally about your children vis a vis vaccines and all.
Hep A is associated with contaminated food, and has no association with hepatocellular carcinoma or chronic hepatitis unlike Hepatitis B and especially C. Even Hep b will resolve on it's own the vast majority of the time, whereas Hep C will progress to the chronic state around 3/4 of the time.
