Depends: Social drinking is not going to interfere with the way the vaccine works. That said I would be sure to keep it to a minimum. Any excess may mean you can't make it to the appointment.

Is it safe to drink alcohol after getting a meningitis vaccine?

Meningitis vaccine: Although most vaccines nowadays cause little or no adverse side effects, it is prudent to not be "adventurous", keep a low profile and observe one's regular daily routine. This way, should you encounter any unusual symptoms, you can consider it as a vaccine side effect. If you drink and get drunk, it will be difficult to consider that as an effect of the vaccine.
