I've noticed in the last couple days, that Sam hasn't been eating much and have now seen him go to the litter box several times with no results. He is about 3 years old, just had a vet visit on Wed. for his vaccinations. He seems fine, walks around, sleeps, etc. Only odd thing is his constant visit the litter box and no results. And not interested in food.
Any ideas? Should I be more worried? Anything to do with the shots he recieved?

You need to call the vet right away. If there is a blockage it can be fatal.

Your cat needs to be seen as soon as possible, going to the litter box without producing anything is a sign that your cat could have a UTI, crystals, or a blockage and the longer you wait to more serious the condition can become.

If it were my cat, I would be on my way to the E-vet immediately!

My guess would be a UTI as well. Even tho he was just at the vets, the vet would not have any idea of the condition unless his urine was tested. If he were just not interested in the food, I would say an after effect of the vacs...but the litterbox problems would not have any connection to the vacs. I would get him to the vet pronto.

Male cats are extremely prone to urinary blockages and it can be fatal in days. Please go to the emergency vet now!

This is a huge red flag for a urinary blockage. If that's what's going on then the quicker he can get unblocked the better his prognosis. It's possible it's something else, but I would not wait if it were my cat.

Don't have anything to add to what's been said about getting him to the vet right away. Hope you are there now. Please update us when you can.

Thanks for the advice everyone. He has had a little success in the box and is drinking water. Keeping a watch on him. The thing is, we are out of town, a weekend, and not home---I'll keep you posted.
Thanks!
