All residents of a nursing home in Spain contracted the coronavirus shortly after receiving the first dose of vaccines from Pfizer, the vaccine company in the country.
The infection was found in all 78 pensioners living in a nursing home in the city of Lagartera in Toledo. They all received a shot of the Pfizer vaccine on January 13 and then, six days later, many of them began to show the first symptoms of SARS-CoV-2, but they wrote it off as a side effect of the shot.
In late December, a patient in Switzerland who had received the Pfizer vaccine died. Doctors pointed out that he was 91 years old and suffered from severe illnesses in addition to COVID-19.
Earlier it was reported that a nurse in the United States contracted the coronavirus despite being vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine. Matthew W., 45, who works as an emergency room nurse at two California hospitals, was vaccinated against the coronavirus on December 18. However, on Dec. 24, he began experiencing chills, achiness, and weakness. Two days after his symptoms appeared, Matthew decided to be tested for coronavirus and tested positive.
