Well, in the first article those that are concerned about alcohol’s effect are not MDs, they are PhDs who are speaking theoretically. All of the physicians quoted in the article doubt that there would be an effect.

In the second article, he states it is theoretical rather than practical situation.

I would expect that a chronic alcoholic, who is likely to be poorly nourished, might have a diminished immune response.

Suggesting that a average person would have a diminished response because of a drink or two is a bridge too far.

The papers I have read suggest that poorly nourished people MIGHT have a diminished response. As far as I am aware there are no actual studies about this.

Yes, an immunologist and a developer of one of the vaccines. Not just any PhD's. And yes, one of Mexico's leading public health officials. This is also what people are being told at the vaccination centers.
