A person who is inoculated with COVID-19 vaccine can still become infected, so there is still a need to observe strict social distancing and wear face masks until the development of herd immunity, according to a Thai post-doctorate researcher at the University of Chicago.

 

The researcher, Dr. Siriruk Changrob, has received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. She talked to Thai PBS, in an online interview, about her condition following vaccination and offered some advice.

 

She received the first injection about 20 days ago. She then showed up for the second injection, as appointed, and was asked by the nurse about any side effects from the first jab and whether she had tested positive for the virus in the preceding 90 days.

And there you have it! The big con goes on. Everyone was led to believe getting the  vaccine would = normality what a lie that was. Looks like the uk under lockup till earliest 17th June (15th Februar

So anybody can get the virus and get sick/very sick completely regardless of whether they've had the vaccination or not.   So what's the benefit of having the vaccination?

Israel research is showing that in the real world positive tests drop quite dramatically amongst those who have been vaccinated, so I think this is just scientists being very cautious.

Could have asked my mum! She's 91 and received her second dose of the same vaccine in the UK on 6th Jan. Sore arm for a couple of days, thats it!

She said "...Dr. Siriruk said, adding that the vaccine only protects a person from developing symptoms and does not protect a person from becoming infected by the virus. 

 

Question for the experts (not the laymen) 'Is this a correct comment?'

Is she a front line worker?  Over 65?  "Reseacher" seems marginal risk.   I'm acquainted with a guy that works IT for a hospital system. 100% remote work never goes into a medical facility.  Got his first injection January 4.  When I asked how he was able to get it so soon the he tells me "I got an email maybe I wasn't supposed to get requesting I schedule an appointment."  Then this dirtbag had the nerve to post on Facebook "got my covid injection to help keep patients safe."

Yes that is correct.

The article in the OP is about the Pfizer vaccine, which I understand won’t be used in Thailand.

 

There’s another very interesting article from the same source (ThaiPBSWorld) here about India where their huge vaccine push using a locally produced version of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine (which I understand will be used in Thailand), is faltering due to fear of side effects:

“There are about 80 students in my batch but only two have opted to get the shot,” said nursing student Sakshi Sharma, 21, in Greater Noida.

 

“My friends are saying there will be side effects, that you can even get paralysis.”

The vaccine is effective for a certain percentage of those who take it, be that 70% or whatever and as a result you should not get any symptoms. However what is not fully gauged yet in any studies is whether even if you've had the vaccine you go on then to get the virus albeit without symptoms and still pass it onto others. Similar to those covid carriers who are asymptomatic and have not had the vaccine.

What she wanted to convey is that even once people are vaccinated, they can still aquire and pass the virus onto others who are not yet vaccinated.

But there are encouraging reports that some vaccines may also prevent further transmission.

Whaddyaknow. A Thai citizen and foreign researcher in the US (I assume, as she seems to be identified in this story) is getting an advanced Covid vaccine right along with American citizens. Will Americans be treated the same way in Thailand.
