This is a incorrect statement. It’s possible to get covid after a vaccine but before full antibody production. In that case you could spread it. It’s also possible to get covid even with the vaccine and spread it but the numbers look really good. Once you have full antibody protection the likelihood of getting and spreading covid is very low to virtually nil once you reach full antibody levels.
The above perception is driven by the press saying people vaccinated can still spread it. They omit that they mean people who were exposed to covid just before or after getting the vaccine.
