can intoxication inhibit antibody formation in response to the gardasil vaccine if its only one night of drinking?

Unlikely: The immune response to a vaccine is a complex issue & one that occurs over weeks, not just at the point of vaccine administration. There is no evidence that a night of drinking interferes with this process.
