Re: Fully Vaccinated Bill Maher Tests Positive For Covid

So utterly ridiculous.  I believe NOTHING they tell us.  They play with our lives and on fear.

@Kitty Galore  The covid vaccine is similar to the flu vaccine in that it doesn't guarantee that you won't get covid, just that your symptoms would be as bad. Just as there are may flu variants, there are different variants of the covid and a vaccine can't prevent every one of them.

I wonder if he was exposed prior to the two weeks post vaccination. I wonder if he had one of the mRNA two shot vacs or if he had the J & J? Hope he stays ok and has no long COVID symptoms.

The Moderna and Pfizer vaxes are both around 95% effective while the J&J single dose one has a lower effective rate..I think I read 65% or 66%.  I don't know what vax Maher got. And yes, as I posted in my first post, he shows no symptoms and only knew he was positive from the test.

i thought once totally vaccinated you could not get covid.    I feel there is so much more to know about this vaccine ,  it's so new so it stands to reason that nothing is 100% no matter what they tell us . 


@Kitty Galore You can still get it but it should not be as life threatening.

A number of the NY Yankees have tested positive and have already had the vaccine.

@proudlyfromNJ , yes,but I read they recieved the Johnson and Johnson vaccine which has a lower rate of preventing the virus.
