Symptoms:  None
Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
You can give your blood test and get a vaccination done.

There is no co-relation between them. Even you can get your blood tests done after getting the vaccination.
However, we advise getting tested after 3-4 days of vaccination as a lot many times you may get a flu-like symptoms following the vaccination
Share my opinion with your Doctor before acting upon it.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
