Nurse tests positive for COVID-19 after getting vaccine


(#Gray #News) – #An emergency room nurse in the #San #Diego area tested positive for the coronavirus more than a week after receiving his first dose of the #Pfizer vaccine.

A nurse who KGTV calls #Matthew W. started feeling sick on #Christmas #Eve, six days after his inoculation, and tested positive the day after #Christmas.

#He works at two hospitals in the #San #Diego area and was working in the COVID unit of a hospital when he started feeling ill.

#Experts said that this is not unexpected, as it takes time for the immunity to develop – 10 to 14 days – and it is possible to get infected before that immunity develops.

The first shot provides 50% protection, #Dr. #Christian #Ramers, an infectious disease specialist with #Family #Health #Centers of #San #Diego, told KGTV. The vaccines available against the coronavirus require two doses.

#Currently, the #Pfizer and #Moderna vaccines have been approved for use, with the shots rolling out to targeted populations first.

The coronavirus pandemic has killed more than 336,000 #Americans, and experts warn holiday travel could cause another spike.
