Would a flu shot raise your lymphocyte count? prior to shot my count was 2000, 12 days after shot it was 2380, a month later it was 1860. Is the change from the shot or is this type of flucuation a normal change depending on day?

A stimulus like a flushot could easily increase your total lymphocyte count temporarily. This being said, the variations you describe are well within the normal variation of a CD4 count throughout the day, or from one day to the next.
