He said it is "reasonable to have". To insure safety (for the husband), is it reasonable to wait until get vaccinated and convert before resuming any sexual relation. The wife had started the vaccine series recently.

I think you should follow the advice of your personal physician, rather than strangers on the Internet. At any rate, we are not allowed to give medical advice.
