I was vaccinated a couple of days before getting the HIV test against typhoid. Could that slow down the time to show antibodies on my test? Does Zelitrex, acyclovir, a medicine against the Herpes Simplex virus, interfere?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
Neither the typhoid vaccine nor the medications will affect the HIV test.
