The governor of São Paulo João Doria (PSDB) confirmed, this Thursday (15), that he tested positive for Covid-19 for the second time. The governor also had a confirmed diagnosis for the disease on August 12, 2020. Like 15% of the Brazilian population, Doria was fully immunized with two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. With this increasing immunization, some doubts regarding acquired immunity also arise.

Some of them include: After taking the two doses of Covid vaccine, can I get the virus again? Will the vaccine make me completely protected from the disease?
