The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has just published brand new data on the percentage of people who become infected with COVID-19, even though they have been fully vaccinated.
The latest information shows that their number remains extremely low.
In those total quantities released on Friday, April 30, more than 95 million Americans were fully vaccinated by Monday, April 26.
To be fully vaccinated, it must have been two weeks or more since they received the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine.
Of these nearly 100 million fully vaccinated people, only 9,245 have contracted so-called vaccine outbreaks. This is an efficiency rating of 99,999.
A total of 5,827 (63 percent) of the cases were women and 4,245 (45 percent) were adults aged 60 and over.
In the initial breakthrough data reported in mid-April, of the then 77 million Americans fully vaccinated, there were 5,800 such cases with an efficacy rate of 99,992.
The efficacy of Pfizer and Moderna double-dose vaccines is approximately 95% in clinical trials. The J&J vaccine is 66.3%.
“It is important to note that reported cases of vaccine outbreaks will be in short supply,”
“Furthermore, not all cases of breakthrough in the real world will be identified due to lack of testing. This is especially true in cases of asymptomatic or mild disease. This observation data is a snapshot and helps to identify patterns and search for signals among cases of vaccine outbreaks. “
The CDC said it would now publish data on the number of breakout cases per week.
