Given anthrax and small pox vaccine. Why do I vomit after alcohol? Will side effects leave?

Hi, I was in the military and was given the anthrax vaccine and smallpox vaccine . During the deployment we were not allowed to drink alcohol, but upon returning I found that after one drink I would get a headache and eventually vomit . I was not the only one this happened to, and was told it may be a side effect of the anthrax vaccine. Eight years later this is still the case. Is this even possible that it is a side effect, and if so does it mean that something larger may occur from it.

Greetings of the day

Its unrelated to vaccination. It's most likely to be due to gastric ulcer. Long term use of alcohol definitely predisposes to gastric ulcer.
Kindly get an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy done.
Wishing you a healthy life.
Take care
