Supposed to start hep c treatment next week and my viral load has increased since having this yrs over 65 yr olds flu vaccine. Anybody heard of this happening? I really dont know if it's worth doing treatment. I don't feel sick but was recently diagnosed with copd which is very tiring even without taking something else on top. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks

According to medical literature, my understanding is that flu-vaccinations can increase one's viral load (temporarily). It is therefore suggested that patients do not measure their viral load within 4 weeks of any vaccination.

Please note that my research was based off HIV viral loads and also noted as a "general" statement attributed to flu-shots, but not necessarily specific to Hep C.

To be 100% sure, it may be best to have your viral load checked before and after a vaccination to gauge an accurate comparison.

Hope this helps!
