A California nurse has tested positive for COVID-19 just eight days after receiving the vaccination.
ER nurse Matthew W., received the Pfizer vaccine on December 18, according to a post from Instagram.
‘Got my Covid vaccine! The 15 minutes afterward sitting around with a bunch of others while health care workers asked us how we felt made me think of an opium den. I’ll report back if I start to grow a third arm,’ Matthew wrote.
But on Christmas Eve, Matthew, who works at two different hospitals in San Diego, began feeling sick after working a shift in the COVID-19 unit.
He told ABC 10 News, that he first got the chills before coming down with muscle aches and fatigue.
On December 26, he went to a hospital to get tested for the virus and tested positive.
And while it is surprising, it’s not unexpected, according to health experts who weighed in on the case.
Dr Christian Ramers, an infectious disease specialist with Family Health Centers of San Diego, told the station: ‘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.’
