Dr. Christian Lammers, an infectious disease expert at the San Diego Family Health Center, told the TV station: “This is not surprising. If you count it, this is exactly what we expect to happen when someone is exposed.”
Ramos said Matthew may have been infected before the vaccine.
Moreover, if Matthew does contract the virus after being vaccinated, then this is still in line with the understanding of healthcare professionals.
Ramos said: “We know from clinical trials of the vaccine that it takes about 10 to 14 days to start to protect the vaccine.”
Ramos also said that he knew that in other cases, medical staff were infected during vaccinations.

Matthew said that he feels better since he developed symptoms last week.
A new report shows that the Trump administration’s goal of vaccinating most of the U.S. population in the first half of next year has been frustrated by the slow launch of the plan. At the current pace, the plan may take nearly 10 years to complete.
Warp Speed operations officials have promised in the past few months that by the end of 2020, 20 million Americans will receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and that 80% of the population will be vaccinated by the end of June.
However, data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that the pace of vaccination efforts is slower than needed. As of Monday, of the 11.4 million Americans shipped earlier this month, only 2.1 million Americans had received the first dose.
At this rate, this means that more than 3 million people will need to be vaccinated every day to reach the government’s deadline in June. NBC News analyzed the data on Tuesday.
Or, if you continue to vaccinate at the current rate, The report shows that it will take nearly a decade to properly vaccinate 80% of the country’s 330.7 million residents.
