Despite Receiving Both Doses of the Vaccine, Congressman Stephen Lynch has Tested Positive for Covid

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.), who received a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine earlier this month, tested positive for the virus on Friday.

Another Democrat from Massachusetts, Rep. Lori Trahan, announced Thursday she had also tested positive. Both lawmakers are reportedly asymptomatic.

Lynch received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine prior to the inauguration of President Joe Biden on Jan. 20, Molly Rose Tarpey, Lynch’s communications director, said in a statement.

“While Mr. Lynch remains asymptomatic and feels fine, he will self-quarantine and will vote by proxy in Congress during the coming week,” she said.

Tarpey did not specify the exact date Lynch received the second dose of the vaccine.

Trahan said in a statement that she would also vote by proxy while she self-quarantined. She received her first shot of one of the vaccines last week, her spokesperson Francis Grubar told The Washington Post.
