    An electron microscope image provided by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases – Rocky Mountain Laboratories, in 2020, shows SARS-CoV-2 virus particles that cause COVID-19, isolated from a patient in the United States, exiting the surface of cells cultured in the laboratory. A fully vaccinated health care worker in Oahu contracted the COVID-19 virus after a recent trip to the mainland but had no symptoms.

A fully vaccinated Oahu healthcare worker was hired Covid-19 After his last trip to the mainland but not showing symptoms.

On Thursday, the Health Ministry said in its weekly report on the group that it had recently identified the case.

The worker received two doses of the approved COVID-19 vaccine, as directed, and completed the series in early January.

The individual traveled to several cities on the mainland about a month later.

The person and his companion were pre-traveled before returning to Hawaii.

Their positive results were received after their arrival in Hawaii.

The Ministry of Health said that neither of them had shown any symptoms and that close contacts had not been transmitted.

Officials said it was not possible to obtain laboratory samples for sequencing, which could identify a different type of virus.

Health officials have confirmed that vaccination against COVID-19 does not guarantee that a person will not be infected with the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that vaccines used in the United States are “effective in preventing COVID-19 disease, especially severe disease and death.”

However, CDC officials caution that we “are still learning how effective vaccines are against variants of the virus that causes COVID-19. Early data shows that vaccines may work against some variants but may be less effective against others.

“We are still learning how COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from spreading disease.”

They stress that other prevention steps – such as wearing masks, avoiding crowding and practicing social distancing – “help stop the spread of COVID-19, and that these steps are still important, even while vaccines are distributed.”
