A California nurse tested positive for the COVID-19 virus more than a week after receiving the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. Health experts want us to believe this is completely normal and it takes time for the vaccine to become protective. Also, a second dose is needed for full efficacy.
Several American’s catch COVID-19 AFTER the vaccine
In a Facebook message posted on December 18, Matthew W., an ER nurse at two different hospitals in the San Diego area, talked about receiving the Pfizer vaccine that day. He told reporters that his arm was sore for a day but he suffered no other side effects.
Six days later on Christmas Eve, after working a shift in the COVID-19 unit, Matthew, 45, became sick. He got the chills and later came down with muscle aches and fatigue. The day after Christmas, he went to a drive-up hospital testing site and tested positive for COVID-19.
In a similar case, Kentucky’s Auditor of Public Accounts, Mike Harmon, announced on Wednesday that he has tested positive for COVID-19, one day after he received the vaccine. Many Americans are skeptical if this vaccine is safe and effective.

A news release from Harmon’s office said he decided to get tested on Tuesday after his wife learned she had possibly been exposed to the virus. He said she was tested Tuesday morning, and the results were positive. Harmon’s test results also came back positive.
“My wife and I only have mild symptoms thus far, and are taking all necessary steps to self-isolate and follow the recommendations of public health officials and the CDC,” Harmon said in a written statement.
Despite the timing of being diagnosed just a day after being vaccinated, Harmon said he still has “full faith in the vaccine itself, and the need for as many people to receive it as quickly as possible. It appears that I may have been unknowingly exposed to the virus and infected either shortly before or after receiving the first dose of the vaccine on Monday.”
