Yes: All vaccines have toxicants. Many will be cleared by the liver and that certainly can lead to an increase in enzymes. The good news is that the liver is very good at healing. Be careful with any vaccine. Avoid taking multiple together. Learn the facts before you expose yourself or others - https://paradoxhealth.wordpress.com/2015/04/02/safe-and-effective/

Elevated ALT: Hepatitis B vaccine has been associated with elevated liver enzymes ALT and AST can be in 200s few days after vaccine with or without autoimmune hepatitis. Usually liver will be back to its baseline in few weeks. If ALT goes up, then seek medical help. Alcohol, high dose Tylenol , cholesterol lowering medications, obesity can also increase ALT.
