Nope! Vaccines can transiently increase HIV viral loads, but have no effect on HIV antibody tests, the ability of the body to make anti-HIV antibodies, or the duration of the window period.
One word of caution to remember: HIV-positive folks should not receive "live virus" vaccines, such as Yellow Fever.
