According to the Hawaii Department Of Health (DOH), three residents have tested positive for COVID 19 though they’ve just been fully vaccinated against the CCP virus, causing COVID 19.

“All three patients had received both doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. They all experienced mild symptoms and did not appear to spread the disease to others,” reported KITV.
So, basically, the vaccines don’t stop the virus infection – but lower the risk of being hospitalized or facing severe infection symptoms.
One of the three positive-tested patients was a health worker from Oahu, who tested positive in a routine check, a travel protocol, since he travelers for business across the US states. He didn’t experience any symptoms.
Lt. Gov. of Hawaii, Josh Green, urged people not to be discouraged by the news, as the vaccines work “in a huge percentage of people.”
“Remember, 95 percent of people get immunity from the vaccines and five percent don’t from the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine,” Green stated.
“Some people are going to dive on to this and say, oh, then the vaccine doesn’t work. No, it does work. It works in a huge percentage of people, but not everyone and that’s an important message,” he added.
And the recommendation from CDC stays the same – even people who got COVID 19 and survived it, should get fully vaccinated.
“You should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19. That’s because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. Even if you have already recovered from COVID-19, it is possible—although rare—that you could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 again,” the CDC says on its website.
And “people who received monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma should wait 90 days before getting a vaccine.”
CDC’s statement follows the following recommendations:
“Current evidence suggests that reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection. However, experts don’t know for sure how long this protection lasts, and the risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19 far outweighs any benefits of natural immunity,” it states. “COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you by creating an antibody (immune system) response without having to experience sickness.”
“Related to spring break, they are not the demographic we’ve been focusing in on with regard to travel,” she told reporters at a press briefing, adding that even if fully vaccinated people travel, they “go out and they mix with people who are not vaccinated.”
“We’re so close to vaccinating so many other people, so I would just encourage and remind people that now is not the time to travel,” CDC director Rochelle Walensky stated.
