Three people in the USA fell ill with COVID-19 after vaccination: how is this possible and does it mean that vaccinations are useless
When people began to be massively vaccinated in the United States, it turned out that after vaccination, some still get sick with COVID-19. Edition Forbes using the example of cases in Hawaii, she told why illness after vaccination is normal, and there is nothing wrong with that.
Three locals who received both doses of Moderna or Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine subsequently tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the Hawaii Department of Health (DOH).
In addition, a fourth person to receive the first of two doses of the vaccine eventually contracted coronavirus variant B.1.1.7. This is a more contagious version of SARS-CoV-2.
One in three fully vaccinated people contracted the coronavirus within a month after being vaccinated. It should be noted that none of these four had a serious course of COVID-19.
Why you can still get infected after vaccination
It should be understood that grafting does not form a giant, six-foot-thick concrete cocoon around you. The vaccine does not serve as a 100% effective barrier to the virus, and this is the situation not only with vaccines against COVID-19, but with everyone. For example, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has demonstrated efficiency at the level of 95%, Moderna - 94%, Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) - 85%. That is, after a full vaccination, you have at least a 5 percent chance of becoming infected.

Precautions after vaccination
All of this suggests that you should still take precautions, regardless of whether you are already vaccinated.
The vaccine doesn't make you Superman. Therefore: Maintain social distancing by staying at least six feet (1,8 m) away from others, continue to wear a face shield, and wash your hands thoroughly.
Moreover, the United States is still in the danger zone - transmission of the virus remains relatively high. It must be said that more infectious variants of the virus are spreading. Another upsurge may further delay society's relative return to normalcy.
So don't panic and take the information right. The multiple cases of COVID-19 among fully vaccinated people are not really a shock or a complete failure of vaccinations, but simply what to expect and what is the norm.
