Hi,thanks for query.Please understand that as you are vaccinated againest hepatitis b ,there is almost no risk of this infection.This vaccine is very efficient and protection rate is also very high.For your information pin prick can spread the disease,presence of blood is not necessary.As far as hepatitis c is concerned as patient is negative you not carry risk of this.I think there is no reason to worry.
wishing you good health.
