Virus Hepatitis B & C Mode of Transmission

Can someone please clarify modes of transmission of both these viruses. FA says Hep C is through IV drug abuse and Post Transfusion. Golijan RR says Hep B is IV drug abuse. Isnt Hep B just like through sexual or maternal fetal route ?

According to UW Hep B is through sexual or maternal-fetal and Hep C IV drug abuse and blood transfusion ( But it's rare due to screening of blood before keeping for further transfusion)
