Over 5,800 Americans have contracted COVID-19 AFTER being fully vaccinated against the infection, admitted the CDC today.
Of those people, 396 required hospitalization and 74 died, according to VAERS data submitted to the CDC. It’s widely known that this data is submitted by volunteer basis only, thereby providing only a fraction of the true cases and deaths. Also, CDC is slow to release reports, especially on breakthrough cases. The information lags and typically does not reflect the most current events.
Breakthrough cases were reported among people of all ages eligible for the experimental vaccinations, though more than 40 percent occurred in people 60 or older, the CDC said. Sixty-five percent of cases were female and 29 percent of the infections were asymptomatic.
No COVID-19 vaccine receiving emergency authorization from the FDA is 100 percent effective at preventing COVID-19 infection.
CDC now recommends “people who have been fully vaccinated should keep taking precautions in public places, like wearing a mask, staying at least six feet apart from others, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, and washing their hands often.”
“Experts” are still working to evaluate the effectiveness of the vaccines on COVID-19 variants.
