I hope they figure out what happened here.

I'm guessing that the exposure happened before he got the second dose, and the effectiveness of the vaccine just didn't have time to develop. Maybe the vaccine helped keep him asymptomatic.

The vaccine only increases your body’s ability to fight the virus. It’s doesn’t mean you won’t get the virus.

Isn't that the case with all vaccines though? When one gets the measles vaccine (for example), they are said to be immune- - they won't get measles.

Depends on how you define "get" and "the measles".

Your body doesn’t always create antibodies when you get a vaccine. I had to get the chickenpox vaccine 3 times before the antibodies showed up in my system.

Did they test for antibodies each time or something? I've never heard of that before. Usually, you just get the shot (or shots) and assume it works.

The purpose of a vaccine is to get the body to produce antibodies- - it your body doesn't create antibodies in response to the vaccine, there isn't much point in getting the vaccine.

It was for work. I had to have the antibodies for chickenpox & hep A & B. They tested me soon after the injection, and then administered the chickenpox vaccine multiple times until I tested positive for antibodies.

How soon after the injection did they test and administer another vaccine?

Something about that just doesn't seem right...

It was years ago, so I don’t remember exactly. It wasn’t right after the vaccine was administered. It was at least a week or two later. The PA said it didn’t happen a lot, but it did happen.

Maybe you just have a superpowered immune system that killed the chicken pox without even needing the specific antibodies?

I’m not saying that’s what happened here. I’m just saying it’s a possibility.

Whatever happened, this just goes to show it’s important for people to continue wearing masks and being socially distant until the vaccine threshold for herd immunity is met.

my wife and i are scheduled to get COVID vaccines since we're teachers. i understand that the chance of this happening is low but still a bit concerning.

They do say it takes some time after the 2nd dose before you have enough antibodies to fight the virus, which is why it's so important to keep wearing your mask even after you get vaccinated.
