Brief Answer:
You are HIV negative.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
No there is absolutely no interference in test results if you have taken vaccine for chicken pox. There is no need to worry about test reliability whether you take in XXXXXXX or UAE. Now there is no need for further testing as you are HIV negative. Adopt safe methods for intercourse in future.
