Virologists shared their opinion. Doctors believe that the second stage of vaccination can be postponed if a person gets sick with ARVI between vaccinations. “If you fall ill with a cold after the first vaccination against COVID-19, you need to be treated in the same way as you are treated for ARVI: take, if necessary, antipyretic drugs, abundant warm drinks. When the first acute period of acute respiratory viral infections passes and the temperature is normalized, a second vaccination should be given, "virologist, Ph.D. Nikolai Kryuchkov told Vechernyaya Moskva. Kryuchkov believes that in case of illness, vaccination can be postponed by one to two weeks. His colleague from the Institute of Clinical Immunology of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, a virologist, Dr. Alexander Chepurnov, has similar views. The physician noted that it is better to postpone the date of vaccination not independently, but together with the vaccinologist.
