Can a person who has already vaccinated can still be positive to covid - 19, when he was tested?

After a person who has taken the covid- vaccine, then got contracted by the virus, do you think this person can be still get positive results from the virus?

    For sure, there are people dying of Covid-19 who have been fully vaccinated weeks prior to being diagnosed with the illness.

    We have no idea how effective the vaccine is or isn't, in real life.  Although the medical community and politicians can't get enough of shoving down our throats how "safe and effective" the vaccine is.  The researchers have been really really silent.

    Allegedly yes.

    Let’s just say for the record that the vaccine is safe & effective. 

    But here’s the thing..... even tho I know some say they use mRNA & all that but if it’s anythjng like the flu vaccine then the flu vaccine ain’t that 100% effective either, it just makes it more tolerable & less likely for us to need medical attention. The same logic can be applied here too.

    I think what you are asking is can a person who was previously vaccinated test positive with a PCR   nasopharyngeal swab upon exposure from somebody who is a known positive?

    It is hoped that vaccination prevents the asymptomatic infections capable of transmitting disease. Studies designed to check for that are ongoing but slow in coming.

    In 5% of cases one sees vaccine failure were disease is present indicating that they harbor the virus and thus they would be positive with PCR testing. Those people do not require hospitalization as such infections are mild. 

    I suggest you ignore paranoid personalities who visit QAnon sites for information.

    "New data show that leading covid-19 vaccines have similarly high efficacy

    Studies of millions of people, with the same place and time, provide fairer comparisons than clinical trials do"
