Vaccines Throw Off Labs??
Nov 7, 2009
I've heard that vaccines can cause CD-4 to be artificially higher than it really is. I think I will be able to get the H1N1 vaccine next week. About 4 days after that, I'm due to give blood for my regular doctor visit.
Do you know if the difference is significant? Would it be better to do my blood-work earlier and then get the vaccine?
Thanks so much!

We don't have any data on H1N1 vaccine and effects on CD4 counts. I think it is always better to get your counts done before you get any vaccine.
