Coronavirus: A Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts, who has been vaccinated against Covid-19, has tested positive for the virus

Lynch spokeswoman Molly Rose Tarby said in a statement on Friday: “US Rep. Stephen F. Lynch this afternoon received a positive test result for COVID-19 after an employee in Congressman’s office in Boston tested positive earlier in the week.”

A Massachusetts Democrat plans to impeach and will vote by proxy in Congress over the next week, Tarby said.

The congressman received a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine and had tested negative for Covid-19 before attending President Joe BidenTarby said his inauguration ceremony is on January 20. But she did not specify when Lynch would receive each dose of the vaccine.

Covid-19 vaccines prevent disease, but they do not necessarily prevent infection. If someone tests positive and does not get sick, the vaccine works as intended. If someone tests positive within a few weeks of receiving the second dose, it may be because the vaccine has not yet fully started.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it usually takes a few weeks to build immunity against Covid-19 after vaccination.

Lynch is the latest congressman to test positive for the virus in recent months, as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread across the country.

A few members of Congress and more than 36 Capitol Police officers tested positive for the Covid-19 virus after the January 6 mutiny in the US Capitol Building. Experts consider the riots, which erupted when Congress was ratifying the results of the 2020 presidential election, as potentially a super common event.

Three Democrats earlier this month They said they had tested positive for Covid-19 after sheltering that day with other members of Congress who had chosen not to wear masks.
