Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte tests positive for coronavirus after receiving vaccine

Gianforte, a Republican, was tested for the virus on Monday “out of an abundance of caution” after first showing symptoms on Sunday, according to a statement reported by ABC FOX Montana.  

Gianforte received his first vaccine dose late last week. But according to CDC guidance, it takes two weeks after a second vaccine dose – or two weeks after the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine – for a person to be fully vaccinated.
