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
