In brief: Depends

It would depend on what the vaginal infection is.
If it is yeast or bacterial vaginitis or trichomonas, then maybe not much. If one is concerned with chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, syphillis or other infections then it becomes urgent. Get in to see your pcp or gyn urgently and get checked and treated.
