California Nurse Contracts COVID-19 Days After Vaccination —Report |The Republican News


By Segun Adewole


An ER Nurse in California has tested positive for COVID-19 just days after he got vaccinated against the virus.

Mathew W. got vaccinated on December 18 and immediately took to Instagram where he shared a picture of the certificate he got after taking the vaccine.

“Got my Covid vaccine! The 15 minutes afterward sitting around with a bunch of others while health care workers asked us how we felt made me think of an opium den. I’ll report back if I start to grow a third arm,” he captioned the picture.

Days later, on Christmas eve, Mathew became sick with muscle aches, chills and fatigue after he had worked a shift at a COVID-19 unit after the vaccination.

He went for a test for COVID-19 on December 26 and the result came back positive, Daily Mail reports.

Dr Christian Ramers, an infectious disease specialist with Family Health Centers of San Diego, said such is not unexpected at all.

“We know from the vaccine clinical trials that it’s going to take about 10 to 14 days for you to start to develop protection from the vaccine,” Ramers said.

“That first dose we think gives you somewhere around 50%, and you need that second dose to get up to 95 per cent.”

He advised those who have been vaccinated to continue to follow protection protocols against the virus without letting their guard down.

“You hear heath practitioners being very optimistic about it being the beginning of the end, but it’s going to be a slow roll, weeks to months as we roll out the vaccine,” the specialist said. (Punch)

Michael Jackson’s Former Los Angeles School Vote To Drop His Name From Auditorium

Parents at a Los Angeles elementary school have voted on whether to drop Michael Jackson’s name from the auditorium after damaging paedophilia allegations made against the late pop singer in a documentary.

Gardner Street school’s Michael Jackson Auditorium has become a thorny issue ever since the airing of “Leaving Neverland”, an HBO documentary which alleges the singer molested two boys when they were seven and 10 years old.

Jackson attended the school in 1969, but left after his family band, The Jackson 5, scored their first big hit, “I want you back”.

Officials at Gardner Street school would not say when the results of this week’s vote would be released.

“Following remarks by some parents and team members about the current name of our auditorium … we gave the opportunity to parents and employees to decide on the issue,” said principal Karen Hollis.

The auditorium at the school, in the heart of Hollywood, was named for Jackson in 1989 before first allegations of abuse were laid on the singer, who died in 2009 of a drug overdose.

A 13-year-old boy complained about being abused by Jackson in 1993, but the case was settled out of court. The singer was tried in 2005 for the alleged abuse of another minor, but acquitted.

“The name should probably be removed, it’s not right for an elementary school. The documentary gave a very clear picture of the situation”, Robert Fitzgerald, a parent told the Los Angeles Times.

Another parent disagreed, however.

“People in this country have done much worse, have been convicted and still have their names on buildings”, said Myreon Arslan.
