Has any one received the vaccine and had some lower than normal counts after?

Covid Vaccine and Blood Work
I’m wondering the same. I had my first dose of pfizer two weeks ago and had my blood draw this morning. I won’t know my BCR-ABL until May 19th but I can report back with some WBC/RBC/platelet counts etc later this evening if I notice they’re lower since we get the results online here same day. I go for second shot this Friday. I am assuming it probably isn’t affected too much if it’s been a couple weeks.
Update: My platelet results were 260 from my blood draw this morning. I take imatinib and this result was no lower than a month ago when I had blood drawn. So it looks like having the vaccine two weeks ago didn’t change platelet count.
