You can delay for 2 weeks for sure.....but don't delay these primary vaccination for long. Get it after your quarantine gets over.

In special case like your Yes you can delay it if child is also in quarantine or positive for covid 19 infection. But it should be given as soon as possible after quarantine as this are primary dose. Schedule will then be 3 times in gap of 1 months that pediatrician will explain you when you give 1st dose
