ER nurse tests positive for COVID-19 days after first dose of vaccine, reminder protection not instant

ABC 10

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Health experts are weighing in after a local nurse tested positive for COVID-19 more than a week after receiving his first of two doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

In a Facebook message posted on December 18, Matthew W., an ER nurse at two different local hospitals, talked about receiving the Pfizer vaccine that day. He told ABC 10News 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.

“It’s not unexpected at all. If you work through the numbers, this is exactly what we’d expect to happen if someone was exposed,” said Dr. Christian Ramers, an infectious disease specialist with Family Health Centers of San Diego. He serves on the clinical advisory panel for the county’s vaccine rollout.

  1. “….after receiving his first of two doses….”

    It’s not just one or two shots…. they have an entire schedule of “booster” shots lined up for you in the future, too, just in case the first two shots don’t kill you.

    This idiot’s complaining about getting covid after being vaccinated? The stupid bastard is lucky to be alive.

  2. Gee…you are given a shot that has a strain of COVID in it and you expect to NOT get COVID.

    I think I’ll have that DIET water now.

    Are people really this dumb?


  3. On the flip side, I have friends who work in the healthcare industry who have taken the vaccine and are still fine. The same with some of my wife’s coworkers. Not sure if any of them had a history of allergies or anything.

    In any case, I truly believe a majority, if not all these vaccines are contaminated and are killing more people than they are falsely claiming to be saving and I will never be taking them.

    They can take their vaccines and shove them up their ass! I ain’t being a victim of the new Spanish Flu.
