Greetings,

Thank you for choosing us to get an opinion regarding your health issues.

Based on your explanations, you are worried about a stroke patient taking the vaccine. I will give you the related information regarding this problem.

For your information, there are a few conditions that will contraindicate vaccination which are

  • Those that experience severe allergies, anaphylaxis after receiving 1st dose of COVID-19 vaccine (will not be advised to continue the second dose)
  • Those that have severe allergies, anaphylaxis to other vaccines, medication, or other substance

However, I would recommend your dad to visit the doctor on duty at the vaccination center before taking the vaccine. He will do a short examination and see if he is fit to get the vaccine tomorrow.

I hope I have answered your question.
