A nurse in San Diego has tested positive for the Covid-19 virus just shortly after taking the Pfizer vaccine designed to stop one from contracting the very Chinese virus she was struck with.
ABC News San Diego affiliate KGTV was told by the nurse, identified as Matthew W., a 45-year-old nurse in the Southern Californian city, that he had only expected arm soreness as a side effect of the vaccine but six days later, after working a shift in the COVID-19 unit, Matthew had chills, muscle pain and fatigue.
A drive-up hospital test confirmed he was positive for COVID-19.
Dr. Christian Ramers, an infectious disease specialist with Family Health Centres of San Diego, told KGTV.
“We know from the vaccine clinical trials that it’s going to take about 10 to 14 days for you to start to develop protection from the vaccine,” Ramers said.
This news comes after a chief WHO scientist, Soumya Swaminathan, said:
“I don’t believe we have the evidence on any of the vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from actually getting the infection and therefore being able to pass it on”
