People are getting infected shortly after vaccination. Why? What’s the mechanism?
Earlier this month a study led by Public Health England of vaccination in the over 70s found a “notable” rise in covid-19 infections in people immediately after they received the AstraZeneca vaccine. Similarly, a study of Israel’s vaccination programme, reported in February, found a similar spike in cases among people who had just been jabbed.
It is not possible to know for certain why this is [the spike in cases soon after vaccination].
I believe it is possible to know why people are getting sick post-vaccination. You have to investigate and you have to be free to report your findings. I don’t believe it’s increased socializing, not entirely, not to this degree.
Here’s the case of Israel (Pfizer vaccine):

Surprisingly, daily incidence increases strongly after vaccination till about day 8, approximately doubling.
Remember that … day 8.
Even Pfizer, in their briefing notes to the FDA admit that getting their vaccine increases symptoms of COVID, possibly COVID itself, although they didn’t test (weird):
“Suspected COVID-19 cases that occurred within 7 days after any vaccination were 409 in the vaccine group vs. 287 in the placebo group.”
Because there was a control group that received a placebo, this points to more going on than just increased socializing.
I found at least one mechanism. The vaccines lower lymphocytes.

Of those with laboratory changes, the largest changes were decreases in the lymphocyte count after the first dose in 8.3% (1 out of 12), 45.5% (5 out of 11) and 50.0% (6 out of 12) of participants who received 10 μg, 30 μg and 100 μg BNT162b1, respectively. … These decreases in lymphocyte count after the first dose were transient and returned to normal 6–8 days after vaccination (Extended Data Fig. 1).
In addition, grade-2 neutropenia was noted 6–8 days after the second dose in 1 participant each in the 10-μg and 30-μg BNT162b1 groups.
Transient decreases in lymphocyte counts (grades 1–3) were observed within a few days after vaccination, and returned to baseline within 6–8 days in all participants.

Although there were no relevant changes in routine clinical laboratory values after vaccination with BNT162b1*, vaccinated participants showed a transient increase in C-reactive protein (CRP) and a temporary reduction in blood lymphocyte counts, both of which were dose-dependent (Extended Data Fig. 3).
Lymphocytes are white blood cells. They include natural killer cells, T cells, and B cells. A low lymphocyte count makes it hard for your body to fight infections, of any sort, including COVID.
So, your natural immunity could be depressed for up to 8 days after getting vaccinated.
Mainstream media is failing us. They get too much money from drug companies to report objectively.
* The reduction in lymphocytes also occurs with BNT162b2. See: Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee Meeting December 10, 2020, FDA Briefing Document, Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine
