Can I still take a second-vaccine when I get a cold?

I need to take a second-vaccine tomorrow (4 weeks after I took the first one) but I got some cold symptoms still. Since about four days ago, I got a throat soar, sniffing, low fever (37.3 degree). I took PCR and it is negative.
I am not sure with such symptoms, can I still take a second vaccine?
I try to re-schedule it but the website seems do not offer such options.
Can anyone with similar experience provide any suggestion?
Thanks

Re: Can I still take a second-vaccine when I get a cold?

Yes you can get the second vaccine as it's a simple common cold that you have, it's not COVID.

However, it may make your side effects and recovery a little more uncomfortable the next couple of days than it would otherwise have been. If in doubt, call your doctor.

If you are fit enough, go to the vaccination center. Am sure they will not vaccinate you if it's not advisable.

Only when you got 38.5 degrees or more , you don't get the vaccination

Re: Can I still take a second-vaccine when I get a cold?

The official advice:

https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/en/home...%E2%80%99m-ill

----
Should I have the vaccination if Iím ill?

Itís better to postpone the vaccination if you have a high temperature and feel ill or unwell. But you should make sure you get the vaccination once you have no more symptoms.

If you have symptoms matching COVID-19 the following still applies: Get tested immediately after the onset of symptoms. Stay at home until the results of the test are available. During this time you should also not go for a vaccination appointment.
----

Which is basically the same advice as for most other vaccines I've seen. Based on this, and personally, I wouldn't count a simple cold as being unwell enough to not take it unless you have any other health issues.

They won't just give you the vaccine but will ask you questions on the basis of which they may advise you to postpone or to seek expert advice.
