Sans rendez-vous

 Thursday on Europe 1, Marie explains that she will have to be vaccinated against Covid-19 soon.

This listener must also undergo an MRI where she will be injected with a contrast product, a few days after the first injection against the coronavirus.

She wonders if it might not be a problem to have the contrast product and her first dose injected a few days apart.

Doctor Jimmy Mohamed tells him that there is no incompatibility between getting vaccinated and having an MRI and encourages him not to cancel his medical appointments.

Should you stop taking your medication if you are vaccinated?

"If you are taking medication and you are going to get vaccinated, keep taking them. In general, never stop your treatments on your own. And for the Covid-19 vaccine, it is true that there are a lot of questions for a vaccine which is ultimately quite simple and quite classic, so don't stop your treatments, there is no interaction.

The only thing is that some patients will have very specific treatments with immunoglobulins and in these cases, you have to respect an interval between the injection of immunoglobulins and the vaccination.

But there, it is the specialist doctor who refers you.

But for the rest, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, all chronic diseases, you can get vaccinated, that's the only way to protect yourself. "

Coronavirus: follow the evolution of the situation Thursday, April 15

If you have a history, can you get vaccinated with AstraZeneca? 

"People with a history can do this. But it's not clear exactly what additional risk they run with the vaccination. All that can be said is that with AstraZeneca, you have a risk of thrombosis of 1 in 1 million. It's almost as much as being struck by lightning. And conversely, if you ever have the coronavirus, you are over 65, you have a one in 100 chance of dying. Put it in perspective When you are a smoker for more than 20 years, you have a 1 in 10 chance of dying from lung cancer.

Of course, there are risks with regard to vaccination.

But the benefits are so important that we have to tell ourselves we have to go.

Again, I am not minimizing the thrombosis that will occur, because these are terrible accidents.

But unfortunately these are side effects that are probably expected.

I always tell my patients: 'This is the benefit, this is the risk'.

You are free to get vaccinated.

There is no injunction to do it, but that's how we're going to get by.

In fact, the vaccine protects lives and saves lives.

We see it in England and Israel in particular.

The vaccination campaign has worked and people are getting a new life and no longer getting sick. "
