Catt Sadler is sick in bed with covid and a fever after being fully vaccinated

We’ve heard stories of famous people testing positive for covid after being fully vaccinated however those cases have been relatively mild. E! News reporter Catt Sadler, 46, not only contracted coronavirus after being vaccinated, she has a case that’s so debilitating she’s been in bed with a fever for two days. She wrote an Instagram post detailing her symptoms and how she caught it and it all sounds quite awful. Catt said she’s been caring for someone who was sick and didn’t realize they had coronavirus. She said she was wearing a mask but that she caught it anyway and that she’s really paying for it. Here’s what she wrote:

This is important. READ ME:
I’m fully vaccinated and I have Covid.
I’m telling you this so that you understand that the pandemic is very much NOT over. Delta is relentless and highly contagious and grabbed ahold of me even after getting vaccinated. I was caring for someone who contracted Covid (although at the time we thought it was just the flu) – so I did come into close contact with the virus, but I wore a mask, and again I’m fully vaccinated. I assumed I would be fine. Well I’m not. I’m one of many breakthrough cases that we are seeing more of each and every day. They said “you shouldn’t have severe symptoms at least” – well, mine are not mild. Two days of a fever now. Head throbbing. Extreme congestion. Even some weird puss coming out of my eye. Serious fatigue; no energy to even leave the bed. If you are not vaccinated and not wearing a mask, I assure you you don’t want to feel like this and not only are you bound to get sick eventually you’ll be spreading it to others (as in my case – I got this from someone who wasn’t vaccinated :/ )
If you are vaccinated, don’t let your guard down. If you’re in crowds or indoors in public I highly recommend taking the extra precaution of wearing a mask. I’m no MD but I’m here to remind you that the vaccine isn’t full proof. **Vaccines lessen the likelihood of hospitalization and death but you can still catch this thing. So continue to protect yourselves. I love you guys and I so appreciate my thoughtful friends and fam rn.
Thank you for the goodies!

I hope that Catt is ok and that she’s over the worst of it now. It all sounds quite awful. I’m going to be masking up inside and only hanging out indoors with people I know who are vaccinated. I’m so disappointed in the CDC for lifting mask requirements and acting like the pandemic is over. As Catt sadly is experiencing firsthand, it is not.

The Delta variant may also has different symptoms from earlier strains. You can learn more about it here, on AARP’s website. Also there are over the counter covid tests available at major retailers like CVS and Walmart. I took the BinaxNow test (not an ad) after attending a large outdoor event. It was $23 for two tests, which I took over two days as they suggested. Thankfully my tests were negative and I got some peace of mind. Please stay masked inside for your sake and the sake of your loved ones.

    Look at that cute Puppeh!!!!!
    I hope she is better soon.
    Thank goodness for vaccination, saving people from a much worse version of this illness.

  2. Seraphina says:

    The vaccine keeps us out of the hospital and off ventilators. It also keeps us from dying. It will not stop us from catching COVID. The symptoms are also lessened with the vaccine.
    My family and friends (whom I still see) err on the side of caution and wear masks, avoid large crowds, people who are not vaccinated and we still sanitize. I know vaccinated people who caught COVID and, I quote, one said: Thank God I am vaccinated because if this is LESS severe, I would hate to experience the real deal.

    And adding the variants that are out there – I will continue to try everything I can to be safe.

    I wish her well and a safe and speedy recovery.

    • LilacMaven says:

      Exactly. The main purpose of the vaccine wasn’t to prevent infection (although it does lower one’s risk), it was to prevent hospitalization and death. And it has succeeded in doing that for 99.9% of people with breakthrough infections.

      People need to realize what “mild” means in regard to Covid. Yes, it covers people who are asymptomatic or only mildly symptomatic, but what she’s describing – fever, exhaustion, etc. – is also considered a “mild” case by medical professionals. Why? She isn’t hospitalized. Just about any Covid case that isn’t severe enough to require hospitalization is classified as mild.

  3. Katherine says:

    I think we need more than two shots. We need three with hepatitis B and HPV, we need yearly boosters for the flu, as well as boosters for a few other vaccines, so probably the same with this, just two doses might not provide enough immunity.

    • HeatherC says:

      I think we may need yearly COVID shots like we have yearly flu shots….to help protect against different strains/variants. We’re at a dangerous spot now where enough are vaccinated that people falsely feel “free” to return to pre-pandemic behaviors and we are NOT there and may never be there again.

      Not to mention government public health agencies like Tennessee Department of Health deciding not to encourage vaccinations, especially to teenagers, for COVID and everything else! In my experience there are two age groups that need all the protection they can get because they are unable/won’t follow social distancing, hygiene, etc….preschoolers/grade school who aren’t old enough to fully understand and be cognizant and teenagers who feel they’re plenty old enough to make their own decisions and like to prove the adults in the room wrong!

    Folks who have autoimmune issues & are in poor health can’t afford to even have a mild case of Covid ESPECIALLY folks who don’t have access to decent Healthcare and in this country that group includes millions!

  5. Mel says:

    The vaccine prevents death and severe Covid, it has been said repeatedly that you can STILL catch Covid and pass it on to others. Keep wearing those masks and washing your hands. I’m not listening to the CDC, I’m keeping my mask on.

    • LilacMaven says:

      Same. I’m not going anywhere in public without a KN95 mask. I don’t care if other people think I’m paranoid. Even mild Covid is a miserable experience.

  6. Asking for a friend says:

    Covid stories – recently was planning a group dinner with some former colleagues, all of us scientists. Found out during the planning that one wasn’t vaccinated and wanted to find out if people were still ok with having dinner with them. I had to say no…not just because I care about my health (I’m vaccinated, but still…) and the health of others, but also because I don’t feel like I can relate to someone who is such a ninny and a biologist to boot. It was shocking. Flash forward two days later and I found out that a friend’s best friend just died of Covid on Monday. Mama ain’t raised no fool, I’ll be masking and avoiding people for a long time to come.

    • Anne Call says:

      All my friends are vaccinated but two of their “alternative living” sons (from different families) refuse to be vaccinated. These are kids that grew up in luxury in Bay Area, went to expensive private schools and universities and now think they know more than the world’s scientists and medical profession. Have even less patience with spoiled pretend hipster kids than truly uneducated repub base who watch Fox every night. We are just staying away from everyone I’m not 100% sure of at this point. Not worth the stress.

    • LilacMaven says:

      Stories like this just boggle my mind. How can someone who has dedicated their life to science refuse to get vaccinated? WTAF!?

      And I would’ve refused to dine with them, too. Thankfully, all but 2 members of my family are now vaccinated. Those 2 have already been told visits aren’t happening unless they get the jab.

    Don’t forget about long COVID

  8. Reece says:

    This is why I still wear masks, everywhere, because you can still get it when vaccinated. When people give me funny looks, I just glare back at them. It’s fun actually.

  9. Truthiness says:

    Thanks so much for covering this Celebitchy, the non-vaccinated are walking petri dishes amongst us. I am still recovering from the 2nd Moderna shot but then I had never fully recovered from the virus. I feel sorriest for the unvaccinated children going back to school in the fall, we know babies and children can die of this.

  10. Sassy in Utah says:

    I tested negative for Covid. But after I got vaccinated I actually started to feel better and like myself again. So strange. And my doctor can only say that she just doesn’t know why the vaccine made me feel better. I think it was because I had long haulers. I had every symptom and I was so sick. I am still struggling but doing better.

  11. Isobel says:

    Does she ever say which vaccine she got?

    • Seraphina says:

      At this point I don’t think it matters. Both Pfizer and Moderna have shown you can catch even if vaccinated. But I am sure the people tracing all this know which one she received – for sure.

      • Anne Call says:

        Moderna and Pfizer have 90/95% efficacy. So if you’re not careful you can be one of the 5-10% in that number. Mask up and still be cautious around strangers.
