Brief Answer:
Unlikely but will recommend a urine test.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about the presence of this blood in your urine. Unlikely to be related to the vaccination. Most common cause are kidney stones or a urinary tract infection. I will suggest that you go ahead and get a urinalysis done to shed more light on the nature and possible origin of this blood in your urine.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask of more information and clarifications if need be.
