Brief Answer: Complete report required Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXX Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX I am a bit confused regarding what you intend to ask. May I request you to please attach a copy of the report for PCR RNA in your query. I understand that your HIV antibody test is negative after 8 months. In that case flu shot has no valid significance. Please do write back with complete report details. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
