While many Americans are receiving COVID-19 vaccines and getting the protection that vaccines afford, they’re not entirely failsafe. Indeed, the Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention has reported that nearly 5,800 people vaccinated against COVID out of 77 million have become infected.
CNN reported, in an April 15 story, on what are known as “breakthrough cases” of COVID-19, occurring in vaccinated patients.
“So far, about 5,800 breakthrough cases have been reported to CDC,” a CDC spokesperson told CNN via email, adding that, “to date, no unexpected patterns have been identified in case demographics or vaccine characteristics.”
