For someone who has been vaccinated against Covid-19, will a subsequent Covid test show up as positve? If so, how is it possible to have a negative test after being vaccinated?
Surely the antigen tests detect the presence of antibodies, which the vaccines stimulate the immune system to produce? I can see that the PCR test will do a better analysis though.For all vaccines, vaccination will not cause someone to test positive for COVID-19 on PCR tests, nor on antigen tests or antigen rapid tests.
No, the antigen tests are different from the antibody tests. The antigen tests detect whether a protein that is a part of the virus is present.Surely the antigen tests detect the presence of antibodies, which the vaccines stimulate the immune system to produce?

You still need it for travel in many cases.Don't' know the answer but not sure why it matters. If you've been vaccinated, the latest statistics are that your chances of getting Covid are 2 in 100,000 so why would you NEED a negative test?
Can't you just supply proof of vaccination?You still need it for travel in many cases.
Could they have been false positives?Odd that 2 vaccinated people got the virus again. Makes me wonder if the 2 out of 100,000 statistic I read is really true.
Well, that certainly makes the 2 our of 100,000 look like nonsense.
Since 95% (the stated efficacy of the Pfizer/Moderna vaccines) is 2 in 38, I wonder what the 2 in 100,000 stat means/comes from too.Odd that 2 vaccinated people got the virus again. Makes me wonder if the 2 out of 100,000 statistic I read is really true.
I think maybe it was the number of DEATHS of vaccinated people who still contracted covid, but even that seems unrealistically low. Wish I could remember where I read it. I think it was a reputable publication but that doesn't mean the reporter didn't misreport something.Since 95% (the stated efficacy of the Pfizer/Moderna vaccines) is 2 in 38, I wonder what the 2 in 100,000 stat means/comes from too.
According to the CDC, the ratio is about 1 death in 200,000 for fully vaccinated people.I think maybe it was the number of DEATHS of vaccinated people who still contracted covid, but even that seems unrealistically low.

As of June 14, 2021, more than 144 million people in the United States had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Contracting Covid once fully vaccinated is about 1 in 2000.According to the CDC, the ratio is about 1 death in 200,000 for fully vaccinated people.
As of April 30, 2021, approximately 101 million persons in the United States had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
A total of 10,262 SARS-CoV-2 vaccine breakthrough infections had been reported from 46 U.S. states and territories as of April 30, 2021.
Is really 549 because you need to subtract the 122 cases where the patients died from something else.671
Sure, and these have been around since the beginning (although some were pooh-poohed then). Could my 40,000 be 30,000 or 50,000? Sure. 20,000 or 80,000? Maybe. 4000 or 400,000? Probably not.The findings in this report are subject to at least two limitations.
That seems high. Converted to US numbers, 15 per 100K per year is 50,000 flu deaths. That's a bad flu season. Granted, you've tossed in pneumonia, but pneumonia is very often a complication of something else. So where it appears isn't always so well-defined.Estimates flu and pneumonia deaths as 15 per 100,000 persons per year
36 deaths per 100,000 persons per year
Yes, it seemed high to me. But anyway, if we take the numbers in the study, they say vaccination reduces death rates by 96.7%, which is about 30x, closer to your 75x (although the other way of calculating gives 2x).That seems really, really high. Converted to US numbers, 36 per 100K per year is 120,000 Covid deaths/year. But, you say , Israel is not the US. Perhaps they have more Covid. It goes the other way: Israel has had 6500 deaths in 9 million people, and the US has had 95x as many deaths with 35x the population, so actually the extrapolation is 325,000 Covid deaths among a fully vaccinated US population per year. This says the vaccination buys a factor of 2.
I think I trust my 75x more than 2x.
MIAMI (AP) — A vaccinated Miami-Dade county commissioner who helped other local officials in Surfside following the collapse of a condominium building announced that he and his chief of staff tested positive for COVID-19.
The news release late Sunday from Miami-Dade County Commission Chairman Jose “Pepe” Diaz said he and his chief of staff Isidoro Lopez, who also received a vaccine against COVID-19, came down with flu-like symptoms earlier in the day and later tested positive for the virus.
“Staff and others who have been in close contact with them will be getting tested between today and tomorrow,” the news release said. The statement also said Diaz and Lopez would be isolating and following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“Breakthrough” infections — fully vaccinated individuals who contract the Coronavirus — do happen, although they are very rare. An Associated Press analysis of government data in May showed only about 1% of such cases resulted in hospitalization or death. The analysis suggested that nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. recently have been in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths could approach zero if every eligible person gets the vaccine.
Last week, Florida health officials reported an increase in COVID-19 cases and a higher positive test rate compared with other recent weeks.
I think that's what 95% effective means.So, some folks who have been vaccinated against SARS-COV-2 may also contract the virus and develop symptoms of COVID-19.
I think that's what 95% effective means.Nevertheless, it appear to be relatively rare.
