Who shouldn’t get the COVID-19 vaccine? Are there any consequences after vaccination? Deputy Head of the Service for Sanitary and Epidemiological Welfare and Public Health Nurmat Otabekov replied to these questions. 

- Who is not recommended to get vaccinated? 

- During the implementation of vaccination measures, the recommendations of the manufacturer of the vaccine should be followed. Vaccination is not recommended for persons with HIV infection or autoimmune diseases, including those with a history of severe allergic reactions, pregnant women, lactating women and persons under 18 years of age. 

In any case, the decision to vaccinate is made after a medical examination. 

If there are circumstances that prevent vaccination, the doctor conducting the physical examination will definitely take them into consideration. 

- Is it possible to vaccinate people who have been in contact with coronavirus patients? Where and how can this be done? 

- Persons who have been in contact with coronavirus patients will be vaccinated when the 14-day quarantine period is over, after the examination of the doctor. 

- What work is being done to prevent complications after vaccination? 

- Persons vaccinated against coronavirus by patronage health workers will be monitored for 30 minutes. Then they will be taken under regular medical supervision. Health workers will visit them at home for three days. They will monitor the health status of the vaccinated persons and draw up the appropriate documents. 

All vaccination centers will have a group of specialists (vaccinators), equipment and drugs necessary for the provision of primary healthcare. Vaccine specialists have been trained to identify adverse effects after vaccination and provide appropriate medical care when needed. 

I will note once again that citizens will definitely undergo a medical examination before being vaccinated. This is done to prevent unexpected complications.
