Yes it could be worms and may not be associated with the injections. Please call your vet and ask if the vaccines they use have know side effects of blood in the motions. Blood can be present after giving worming tablets as some worms will cause bleeding where they have been attached to the gut wall. If the bleeding is still present please take a sample of the motions to your vet for examination.

Maybe she was constipated and from oushing to hard burst a blood vessel which could be causing the bleeding i can't say for sure maybe a mild laxative might help but if it persists i suggest you see a vet it might be serious.
