Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau has been infected with the novel coronavirus, despite getting two shots of the COVID-19 vaccination, his grandson Yedidya Lau tweeted on Saturday evening.

He described the former chief rabbi of Israel as “feeling great.”

He said that Rabbi Lau was infected by his wife, who was exposed to a confirmed carrier of the virus in the beginning of the week.

Lau, who is 83 years old, had already been vaccinated with the first and second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

Vaccinations are meant to immunize people against the virus. However, in some cases, it is possible to still be infected with the virus and pass it to others without showing any symptoms.
