It’s a pandemic of the triple-vaccinate? Add Sen. Cory Booker to the list:
I learned today that I tested positive for COVID-19 after first feeling symptoms on Saturday. My symptoms are relatively mild. I’m beyond grateful to have received two doses of vaccine and, more recently, a booster – I’m certain that without them I would be doing much worse.

Triple-vaccinated Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she’s tested positive for COVID-19 earlier today and is experiencing mild symptoms:
I regularly test for COVID & while I tested negative earlier this week, today I tested positive with a breakthrough case. Thankfully, I am only experiencing mild symptoms & am grateful for the protection provided against serious illness that comes from being vaccinated & boosted.

For those keeping score at home:
.@SenWarren is the 97th member of Congress to publicly announced they've tested positive for COVID.
15 of those have been senators. Note: last time a senator tested positive, three senators tested positive.

And are we still calling these “breakthrough” cases?
Another rare breakthrough case. https://t.co/cr19nRy3BQ

Yep. We’re all going to get it:
Everyone is going to get it at some point. Glad we are now in a time where we (mostly) no longer shame people for getting a highly-contagious virus. https://t.co/eB6f3rb2P3
