Answers Chief Oncologist of the Ministry of Health of Russia Andrey Kaprin:

– Vaccination against COVID-19 is the most important condition in the fight against the pandemic. The presence of an oncological disease, according to the instructions for medical use of the Sputnik V vaccine, is not a contraindication for vaccination. Nevertheless, the vaccination of cancer patients must be carried out with special care and supervision. Anyone who has a history of cancer and wants to be vaccinated should coordinate their actions with the attending physician. These patients require increased monitoring and close monitoring.

There are contraindications. Be sure to consult your doctor
