  1. No the vaccinations shouldn’t affect the results.

  2. Should I repeat the test or it is ok? I got vaccination for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, meningitis and influenza one week before the exposure. I took the test 30 days after exposure and 37 days after vaccinations. Will the vaccinations effect the results or not?

  3. The test is about 95% accurate. For more details please follow this link

  4. How accurate is a HIV test 1 month after exposure if I used a HIV-1 & -2 antibody-antigen p24 test? The result was negative.
