January 31 – Democratic Congressman Stephen Lynch of Massachusetts (Massachus) had previously vaccinated two doses of Pfizer vaccine and obtained a negative virus test report, but according to the latest statement of his office on the 30th, Lynch was diagnosed with COVID-19 on the 29th.
Comprehensive Fox News and AXIOS News reported on the 30th that an employee of Lynch’s Boston office in Massachusetts was diagnosed with COVID-19.
Although Lynch had been vaccinated with two doses of Pfizer vaccine, he still received positive results for COVID-19 on the 29th. Lynch’s spokesman said that Lynch is feeling good now.
He will self-quarantine and be charged with an agent voting on his behalf in Congress in the next few weeks.
The spokesman added that Lynch has been following the instructions of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) since vaccination.
The timing of Lynch’s Pfizer vaccine was not announced, but his spokesman said he had received a second dose of Pfizer vaccine before attending Biden’s inauguration on January 20 and had received a negative virus test.
In addition, another Democratic congressman from Massachusetts, Lori Trahan, announced on the 28th that she had tested positive for the novel coronavirus, also asymptomatic.
She had been vaccinated with the first dose last week, and Trahan will also entrust an agent to vote in Congress.
At least 23.2 million people in the United States have been vaccinated, and the CDC recommends that vaccinated people continue to wear masks, maintain social distancing, and wash their hands frequently.
CDC guidelines point out that it is still impossible to know whether the virus can be avoided after vaccination, even if the patient is not asymptomatic.
