The updated list of contraindications for vaccination against coronavirus infection with the EpiVacCorona vaccine, as well as the list of diagnoses and conditions in which vaccination can be done, but with caution, was published by the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. This was reported on February 24 by "Moskovsky Komsomolets" with reference
on the algorithm for working with EpiVacCorona sent to the regions.
So, vaccination against coronavirus with the EpiVacCorona vaccine cannot be done:
- people who have previously had a coronavirus infection, and those who have antibodies to coronavirus;
- patients with severe allergic reactions;
- patients with malignant blood diseases;
- patients with primary immunodeficiency;
- pregnant women;
- persons under the age of 18;
- patients with hypersensitivity to aluminum hydroxide and other components of the drug.
In addition, the algorithm states that for some patients the vaccine, although not contraindicated, may pose a risk due to a lack of information about the consequences. These are patients with impaired liver and kidney function, with serious problems of the endocrine system, with epilepsy, stroke, ischemia, heart attack and allergies.
The procedure for carrying out vaccinations for people who have just suffered a disease is specially spelled out. So, if the patient has a cold, acute respiratory viral infection or intestinal infection in a mild form, then you can be vaccinated with EpiVacCorona as soon as the body temperature returns to normal. If the disease has dragged on and has become severe, or a chronic ailment has worsened, then you will have to wait at least 1 month after complete recovery or remission and only then get vaccinated.
