Blood count fluctuations

Hi everyone.

I had my recent appointment at my local hospital last Tuesday and they informed me my neutrophil count was slightly low 1.4 at my last visit to my transplant hospital. I’d had my flu and Covid vaccine around 3 days previously. My latest bloods were taken a couple of weeks ago and the neutrophil was still at 1.4 but my platelets have dropped to 166. However this blood test was taken at the end of a nasty viral infection,headaches high temps etc. Do you think these two factors will have affected my blood count fluctuations ? I am nearly 5 years post transplant for AML and otherwise feel great.
