Mixing alcohol: Well noticing your age, I cannot endorse drinking alcohol. It's actually a toxin, which is why it can make somebody drunk or cause other effects. Technically, it wouldn't interfere with the TB skin test or the vaccine, but still it is NOT doctor recommended at this time. Sorry. I'm glad you're otherwise taking care of your health though-HPV vaccine is extremely important to prevent cervical cancer

No problem: Routine alcohol consumption does not effect either.

Alcohol: No it won't affect the test, but of course you should not drink to excess ever.

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!
