|Can HPV vaccine cause false HIV possitive result?
Aug 6, 2009
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a gay man. I want to get vaccinated against HPV but I am afraid that this vaccine can affect my HIV test which I want to take in two weeks and then repeat in a month. Could this really happen? The test is going to be HIV DUO detecting both antibodies and p-24.

In general, vaccinations don't affect the reliability of HIV antibody testing. Certainly, P24 testing shouldn't be affected.
