Israel is among the most advanced countries in vaccinating the population against covid-19, with almost 1 million doses applied so far. Now, the country’s press reports that, of the people who received the immunization adopted in the country, manufactured by Pfizer, 240 were diagnosed with the coronavirus after receiving protection.

According to the Times of Israel website, these cases do not mean that the vaccine, instead of protecting, infected people. The explanation, explains the vehicle, is that the vaccine does not guarantee immediate protection, that is, after receiving the dose, people should continue protecting themselves for a few weeks.

“The cases underscore the importance of individuals continuing to protect themselves for weeks after being inoculated, as the body takes time to develop effective antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes covid-19,” says the website .

Pfizer, for its part, has already clarified that its vaccine does not contain the virus, so it cannot pass it on to people. The formula only contains a piece of the genetic code of the new coronavirus, which makes the body produce antibodies against it, thus leaving the body protected in case of infection.
