I had the HPV vaccine yesterday, but I went to the doctors on Monday and he said I had to have a blood test.
But surely the injection will make my white blood cell count higher than usual? Do I have to wait to have a blood test?
injections and blood tests? Watch

I think that your best bet is to mention it to your doctor before you have the blood test. Whether it will make a difference really depends on what part of the blood they are measuring. Its probably better that they know before just to make sure that they don't have to redo it.

When you go for the blood test ask the nurse or doctor who takes the blood. They would then be able to advise you as to whether to wait another week or so or atleast make a note of it.
Or, you could phone up the surgery prior to your appointment and ask to speak to a nurse or doctor and rearrange the appointment if necessary?
