No: The vaccine should work just the same, but surely there are no research studies on what happens to vaccination effects in patients who have a shot of bourbon after a shot of Gardasil.

Not that I know of: Should be fine, I don't know of any vaccines that interact w/alcohol. That being said, make sure to drink responsibly!
