#Six days later, on #Christmas #Eve, he fell ill after working a shift at the COVID-19 unit, according to the report. #He felt chills and then began to suffer from muscle aches and fatigue.

#He was tested at a hospital and tested positive for COVID-19 the day after #Christmas, according to the report.

#Christian #Ramers, an infectious disease specialist at #Family #Health #Centers in #San #Diego, told the ABC #News affiliate that this possibility was not unexpected.

“#We know from clinical trials of the vaccine that it will take 10 to 14 days to start developing protection with the vaccine,” #Ramers said.

“#We think that first dose gives you about 50% and you need a second dose to get to 95%,” he added.
