About 250 people who received two doses of vaccine against COVID-19 have fallen ill with coronavirus in the U.S. state of Michigan. The portal Business Insider writes about it on April 7.
According to Lynn Sutphin of the Department of Health and Social Services of the state, those who were vaccinated reported cases during three months: from the beginning of January to the end of March. Within 14 days of getting the vaccine, 246 people tested positive out of 1.7 million who were vaccinated. An official said that some tests may have been positive as a result of a previous illness.
According to the source, three of the applicants died, they were over 65 years old. For two of them, it was less than three weeks after the vaccination was completed.
Sutfin noted that immunity usually develops within two weeks after a full vaccination, but the process may take longer for some.
It is specified that three vaccines are approved in the United States: the two-dose Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna, as well as the Johnson & Johnson single-component.
On April 1, a case was reported of a New York City resident contracting the coronavirus after being vaccinated with Moderna.
Melanie Rosen, a school secretary from the Long Island area, was vaccinated with the drug. Thinking she was safe from the coronavirus, she did not wear a medical mask at the wake, but she was infected nonetheless. This happened a month after the vaccination.
