New York woman falls ill with COVID-19 after being vaccinated with Moderna

A New York City resident fell ill with COVID-19 one month after being vaccinated with Moderna, PIX-11 reports.

Melanie Rosen, a school secretary from the Long Island neighborhood, was vaccinated with the drug. She thought she was safe from the coronavirus and did not wear a mask at the wake, but she was infected. This happened a month after the vaccination.

Melanie first got a stuffy nose and then her legs began to hurt, the woman said. She called a friend who was also at the wake and learned that three of those gathered that day had tested positive.

“I was shocked. I’m one of those 4.9 percent of people who got the Moderna vaccine and got COVID-19,” Rosen reported.

More than 31 million cases of the coronavirus have been reported in the U.S., according to the latest data. More than 565 thousand citizens have died from the consequences of the disease.

Earlier, on March 11, it became known that a woman from Utah died four days after being vaccinated with the second dose of COVID-19 Moderna.

On March 5, U.S. doctors discovered a delayed side effect of the Moderna vaccine. In some people, the vaccine caused skin rashes and inflammation more than 10 days after the first vaccination.

Citizens in the U.S. are currently vaccinated with three vaccines – Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson.
