Maybe they were all bitten on the hand or something... Although to be honest, I've never read the comics so there may be more to how the mass zombification happens in this particular universe.
That armor is more for protection against blunt-force trauma than infections. All it takes is a scratch. Also since everyone is infected, you don't have to be killed by a zombie, you just have to die.

They don't explain everything in the comics. Kirkman said he'll probably never say how the whole zombie infection started or get too involved in back-story with it because the characters themselves don't know how it happened. They just have to deal with it.
