Dr Conway from india...please help....
Oct 22, 2005


Can an HIV test give incorrect result due to rabies vaccine? I have taken 5 doses of the vaccine and I tested negative at 7.5 weeks, I know I need to get tested again at 12 weeks, however a negative test at 7.5 weeks did put me at some ease!

Thankyou for your time.

Cheers, Ramesh.

Response from Dr. Conway

Dear Ramesh:

There is no evidence of any kind that a rabies vaccine (or a vaccine of any kind) can make an HIV test falsely negative.
