Yes, you can get an infusion when you have a cold. In fact I have a cold now *sniffle* and a remicade infusion tomorrow, no prob!
The only time you delay an IV infusion is if you have an infection requiring antibiotics (a sinus infection, UTI, bronchitis, etc.). Why? Remicade suppresses the immune system and get a dose of remi reinvigorates the infection, giving that infection a boost. You typically wait until the course of antibiotics is complete before resuming remicade infusions.
