Fully Vaccinated and Testing Positive for coronavirus… State Rep Tells All

by Laura Steinberg

An Arizona legislator has tested positive for coronavirus over two months after her final vaccination. State Rep. Alma Hernandez of Tucson said in a press release Wednesday that she was fully vaccinated 11 weeks ago, still wore a mask when out and practiced social distancing and good hygiene but had become ill with the coronavirus anyway.

She said her symptoms included fever and a migraine headache. She also lost the abilities to taste and smell. Hernandez said she was quarantining at her Phoenix home, where she would remain for the next week.

“I encourage you all to take this seriously and continue practicing COVID protocols. … The pandemic has not come to an end,” she said. “Do not let your guard down even after you have been vaccinated.”

Hernandez is at least the seventh state lawmaker to test positive for the virus. Reps. Andres Cano, Lorenzo Sierra, Arlando Teller, Raquel Teran and JoAnne Osborne and Sen. Lupe Contreras were all diagnosed with COVID in the past year. Sierra became so ill in October that he was hospitalized and put on a ventilator. He has recovered.

On his Spotify podcast on Tuesday, Rogan said that the coronavirus vaccines are safe enough as far as he is concerned. But, on the other hand, not everyone needs to take it, especially young people.

He added that he has encouraged people to take a vaccine if they feel they need to. He even said his own parents had been vaccinated. “Yeah, I think, for the most part, it’s safe to get vaccinated,” he added. “However, young people don’t need the vaccine as much as others.”

“But if you’re like 21 years old, and you say to me, ‘Should I get vaccinated?’ I’ll go, ‘No.’ Are you healthy? Are you a healthy person? Like, look, don’t do anything stupid, but you should take care of yourself,” Rogen said. “You should — if you’re a healthy person, and you’re exercising all the time, and you’re young, and you’re eating well, like, I don’t think you need to worry about this.”
