The vaccine does not inhibit you from contracting and testing positive, it's supposed to minimize symptoms and hospitalizations if you do. The fact that you tested negative just means you didn't contract it.


I understand that, and that's all my expectations really were. But when Hubby and son shared the same vehicle as they ran errands and ate lunch together - I can't imagine what the exposure level would be.... certainly high.

Working through a breakthrough infection right now. Fully vaccinated and boosted. Was intending on getting the second booster but didn't make it before this hit. Like a really bad cold. Sneezing, runny nose, cough, body aches. Been five days since my positive home test. Still not feeling the greatest. Anybody else have the loss of smell and taste? Been dealing with that the past couple of days. Comes and goes and things don't taste 100 percent the way they should taste. Sure hope that gets back to normal. Soon as I can get out I'm going for that second booster.

Talk to your Dr about getting another booster. Your immune system was just “boosted” by the breakthrough infection and I would suspect you won’t need a booster for a while.

As the thread title says "Personal Experiences": After having various family, extended family, and work colleagues get Covid since 2020, with me testing negative multiple times despite nominal at best precautions and no vaccine, I tested positive for Covid 10 days or so ago after feeling enough "flu-like" symptoms to want to take a day off work. After a day or two of feeling crappy, got tested with a positive result. "3rd day" I was starting to feel not-as-bad and by day 5 (and until now) feeling better, have a runny nose but no other symptoms.

According to WHO the BA4, and BA5, is in full bloom down here. And since I got whatever it was in March, it hasn't returned. There may be hope. I'm getting forty or so home tests delivered this weekend. I hate to admit it, but I have been feeling fatigued since what I suspect was Ómicron visited me after returning from hours long shopping in USA stores. Being old I can get away with sudden siestas. I guess since there's nothing to be done about Long Covid, I'll try and ignore it.

Hah! So much for deduction. The home tests arrived. Feeling poorly, I tested positive. It feels like influenza minus respiratory and head congestion. Fever, no cough, and exhaustion. Plus those danged inflamed eyes. This makes once in March, the 2nd time in late June. As a precaution an RN gave me test #2. Covid positive (sigh).

Got the over 50 years old booster. Hope that helps.

This looks of interest:

Mexican newspapers today, are reporting infection #2 of BA 4 or BA 5 are generating "significantly more intense symptoms".

No argument from me. My second go-round did not disagree with the article. I also must agree with their recommendation to discuss a plan in advance with your medical professional. A "Know when to say when" and head for the doctor.

Some good news from Moderna. They claim their new vaccine works well against Ómicron variants.
