A New York woman says she has tested positive for COVID-19 about a month after being fully vaccinated.
Rosen contracted the virus after attending the wake of her friend’s father where she was inside her friend’s home for about 90 minutes without a mask with 10 of her friend’s relatives.
The friend’s family had come from various states. Rosen said,
“There was probably at least 10 family members there. I hung out for about an hour and a half without wearing a mask. I hugged each one.’
Shortly after the wake, Rosen said she developed COVID symptoms, including a stuffy nose and aching muscles. She got tested after being told that three of the family members had since tested positive.
“I was shocked. I’m the 4.9 percent that got Moderna and actually got COVID.”
She said she only suffered a mild form of COVID-19 and believes the vaccine likely stopped her from becoming seriously ill.
Rosen said she had assumed she could resume normal activities and not wear a mask after being fully vaccinated.
“You can still get it; you can probably still spread it. I want people to know it’s not over.”
In recent weeks, a handful of breakthrough cases have been reported in a number of states, including Hawaii, Washington, Florida and Oregon.
The CDC have not released a total figure for the number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated.
