I have gotten the flu shot every year without any problems but this year I am scheduled for the shot just prior to being PCR tested and wondered if anyone knew if that could interfere with the results of the PCR?  Thanks everyone!!  Skittles

It would affect the CBC for a few days, maybe a couple CMP items, but not the PCR.
