J&J vaccine early March. Just tested positive this past week.

Seems to be pretty rare but not unheard of… Anyone else?

Understand it's possible but most cases will be very mild because your body is already prepared to fight the virus.

Yes. My wife and I between Pfizer shots. She had some flu like symptoms. She lost her taste and smell for a few days. I had no symptoms at all. I only got tested to prove I didn't have it and make a plan for me to be able to work and the kids go to school. That backfired.

They really need to explain to people the vaccines do not stop you from getting the virus. In a lot of people who have had the vaccines if you get the virus you won't even know it. Others will have it much less worse. Clinical trials and real-world studies have shown that the COVID-19 vaccines are very effective at preventing severe COVID-19

From the CDC webpage:

"The J&J/Janssen vaccine was 66.3% effective in clinical trials (efficacy) at preventing laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 illness in people who had no evidence of prior infection 2 weeks after receiving the vaccine."

At the 66.3 effective, that leaves a 1/3 chance of catching covid...

Anyone, vaccinated or not, can breathe in COVID and it is in your system. If the viral load is enough that your immune system is unsuccessful at preventing replication to the point you get sick, you will get sick. The vaccine prepares your immune system, so you are much less likely to get sick, and if you do, it will be less severe. The vaccine or an already primed immune system from a previous exposure does not guarantee you will not get sick but significantly reduces your chances. The J and J vaccine is less effective than the pfizer or moderna, but even with the most effective vaccines, there is still a 5-10% chance you will get sick over if you did not have the vaccine. So some people who have had the vaccine or a prior infection, will still get sick.

There is a false narrative out there that "the vaccine does not prevent you from getting sick or passing on the virus" that is stated over and over again. While this is technically true, stating: "The vaccine greatly reduces your risk of getting sick and greatly reduces your chance of spreading the virus" is the more proper narrative.

The vaccines are also not fully effective until about 2 weeks after your second dose, so it is not surprising at all that people are getting sick after their first dose.

People will get sick after the vaccine has taken full effect, but again it will be less and also less severe than if they did not get the vaccine. Those who get sick after having the vaccine, should still be very happy they got the vaccine as they would probably have gotten much more sick if they didn't get it.

None of the “vaccines“ prevent SARS-Cov-2 infection. They are supposed to prevent Covid, which is the disease that can be caused by SARS-Cov-2. It's pretty disappointing that this important fact is not being communicated to everyone.

Sorry to hear this since I'm also planning to get that same 1-shot vaccine myself.
Are your symptoms mild (hopefully), or severe? According to the CDC, its my understanding that a person can still contract the Rona post vaccine, but it's symptoms should not be severe enough to require hospitalization/oxygen. All the best to a fast recovery!

I had the JJ several weeks ago. No problems since. I go everywhere without a mask, except the grocery store. I feel sure I've been exposed to it because I'm not very careful about where I go and what I do. Texas is open and people are mingling.

Interestingly, my 50-ish nephew recently tested strongly twice for covid and the doctor couldn't believe he had no symptoms.

even if 95% effective , it still mean 5 out of 100(or 1 out of 20) can get it.
J&J like said earlier is not even close to this 95%

I don't think it's nearly as rare as they want you to believe. And as time goes on, it will be an order of magnitude less rare than initially too.

It's been said from the beginning, the vaccine does not necessarily keep you from getting the virus, likely just lessens the severity of it if you do. No surprises there. People can still get it, and people can still transmit it. And the people that cannot get a vaccine for various reasons, autoimmune disorders etc are still at risk....... Albeit slightly lower maybe...... And that's why you've got to keep wearing your mask.......... In crowd situations..... Basically forever.

For example: Pfizer states 95% efficacy after both doses administered. That is wonderful but means out of 1 million persons vaccinated, 50,000 can still get COVID. None of those is expected to require hospital care. Population statistics of big numbers. So there will be reports of a few vaccinated people getting COVID: it is to be expected.

Vaccines never stop you from getting a virus. They just make you better at fighting it - usually so good that you never show any symptoms and don't even know you were infected. But sometimes....

When you look at the statistics and the apparent ease in getting either Pfizer or Moderna (at least where I am - NYC and its suburbs) - you can literally walk into any of the government run sites without an appointment and get your shot within 20 minutes (there are far more shots now than people wanting them), I don't know why anyone would want the J&J shot that has a 7-8x greater risk of getting Covid after full vaccination.

The described are consistent with how the majority of unvaccinated people experience COVID and exactly what my family experienced.

And yes, there are documented cases of vaccinated people dying from complications of COVID.

People don't seem to understand what 95% efficacy means. It DOESN'T mean what people are saying here, that 5% will get it. It means that if one person comes into contact with another with covid and is exposed to a viral load that could infect someone, there is a 95% chance they won't be infected. That renews each interaction, so it doesn't mean if you encounter 20 people with covid, you will get it. Each individual interaction is a 1 in 20 chance.

I was around my mother this past weekend. She tested positive after we had been around her so we were/are quarantining. She has has been vaccinated and waited the two weeks. With that said, i just read that since my wife and I are vaccinated, there is not reasonable expectation to do that unless we have symptoms. My 2.5 year old though, is.
