Brief Answer:
I think that this situation is more related to the flu.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You should know that Vermox can lower white blood cell counts when taken for a long time and at doses higher than normal.

So, based on this and the fact that you have taken a normal dose of Vermox, I think that your situation (low WBC) is more related to the flu than Vermox.
It is known that flu can usually cause low WBC and lymphopenia from 3-5 days.

I hope I have answered your query.
