California nurse tests positive for COVID-19 after receiving vaccine


A nurse who works in the emergency services of the city of #San #Diego tested positive for COVID-19 after receiving the vaccine against that disease, according to US media.

#Matthew W., a nurse at two local hospitals, said in a #Facebook post on #December 18 that he had received the #Anti-COVID vaccine from #Pfizer.

#According to the ABC #News affiliate, #Matthew said his arm was irritated for a day after getting the vaccine, but he suffered no further side effects.

#On #December 26, six days after receiving the vaccine, after taking a shift in the emergency unit of his health center with COVID-19 patients, he felt chills, muscle pain and fatigue. A test at the hospital confirmed that he was positive for SARS-CoV-2.

#Christian #Ramers, an infectious disease specialist at #Family #Health #Centers in #San #Diego, told the ABC #News affiliate that this possibility was not unexpected, as vaccinated patients do not immediately develop protection from the coronavirus.

#Clinical trials of the vaccine have shown that this immunization can be achieved days after receiving a second dose.

#While #Pfizer vaccine regulators have found that the best immunity against the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 disease occurs as early as seven days after the second dose, which means that there is a chance that someone who has received the vaccine can contract the virus within that time.

#It should be noted that patients need two doses of the vaccine to achieve immunity, in the case of #Pzifer it takes about 21 days to be applied again.

#According to experts, these cases are nothing more than a reminder that vaccines are not a panacea, as stopping the pandemic will take time.
