|hep a vaccine and antibodies
Sep 20, 2001
Would a hepatitis A vaccine delay or affect results for an HIV antibody test?
| Response from Mr. Kull
There is no evidence that vaccinations will extend the window period for HIV antibody testing. There has been some speculation, but no conclusive evidence, that receiving a vaccine close to the time of antibody testing may yield an indeterminate result.
