Kevin Brady, a member of Republican party of the US House of Representatives, on Wednesday said he has contracted the deadly coronavirus by testing positive some weeks after receiving a first dose of the Pfizer Inc COVID-19 vaccine.
The regimen for the vaccine is two doses per patient within 21 days interval.
“Tonite the Office of House Physician informed me that I’ve tested positive for COVID-19 & am quarantined.
“As recommended, I received a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine December 18 & also recently tested negative for COVID-19 on New Year’s Day,” the congressman said on Twitter.
Brady, 65, is the second House member to report testing positive for the virus this week.
Kay Granger, a top member of the Republican political party on the House Appropriations Committee, also announced on Monday that she had been tested positive for the coronavirus.
