Had a negative Elisa at 3 months post exposure.

Got a flu shot( because of conflicting info was unsure which way to go -- to get or not)....

Had another negative Elisa at 17 weeks.

Was my Elisa at 17 weeks affected in the sequence which I described to you? Thank you and have a good day!

Response from Dr. Bartlett

I do not believe that the flu shot should have affected your HIV antibody test at all, and you should be reassured. Be safe!
