Hep A Vaccine and Test Results
May 25, 2001
Hello Doctor: Would a HepA vaccine received over six months ago affect an HIV DNA PCR and/or an antibody test? Could it cause a false positive on the PCR? The PCR is being taken at six weeks post exposure. The antibody test has not taken place yet.
I greatly appreciate your medical opinion on this matter. Thanks very much.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Hep A vaccine would not affect PCR or antibody testing.
