How soon can we
get the vaccination of other vaccines
from novel coronavirus infection?
On January 30,
Jia Nina, deputy director
of the Immunization Planning Institute
of Shenyang CDC,
gave detailed explanation
to the hot issues
of the COVID-19 vaccination
and other vaccinations.
Q: After recovering from novel coronavirus infection, do people still need the COVID-19 vaccination?
A: After novel coronavirus infection, the body will maintain a high neutralizing antibody level in a short time, and the risk of re-infection is not high. People who have been infected with novel coronavirus in the past can receive one dose after 6 months.
In addition, after the Spring Festival holiday, the mobility of returning groups is high, and it is more likely to be exposed to the virus. The infection risk of the first wave of uninfected people increases. Therefore, it is suggested that uninfected people, especially those over 60 years old, should be vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines as soon as possible to complete the booster immunization and get protection.
Q: Do people recovering from novel coronavirus infection have to wait for at least one month to get other vaccinations?
A: That's not true. People without any vaccination taboo can get other vaccinations after the recovery from novel coronavirus infection. As long as they are recovered and there is no contraindication for vaccination, the vaccination or supplementary vaccination of follow-up routine vaccines can be conducted. People can consult the vaccination doctor for specific conditions. Generally, if there is no symptom for 3 to 7 days, it can be said that the patient has recovered.
