According to epidemiologists, there are at least 102 breakthrough cases since Feb.1 which ic 0.01 percent of citizens in the state who have received their COVID-19 shots. They all got shots against the CCP virus which causes COVID-19. The virus is also known as SARS-CoV-2.

Eight of the patients had to be admitted to a hospital. Two other patients had underlying health issues and lost their lives in the battle. All of them got the virus more than two weeks after receiving their vaccines.

A fully vaccinated person has received both doses of the vaccines made by Moderna or Pfizer/BioNTech. Johnson & Johnson has a single dose.

The Washington State Department of Health says the situation requires further investigation to identify patterns among individuals who got the virus after immunization.

“It is important to remember that every vaccine on the market right now prevents severe disease and death in most cases. People should still get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible, and encourage friends, loved ones, and co-workers to do the same,” Umair Shah, the state’s secretary of health, said in a statement.

“Finding evidence of vaccine breakthrough cases reminds us that, even if you have been vaccinated, you still need to wear a mask, practice socially distancing, and wash your hands to prevent spreading COVID-19 to others who have not been vaccinated.”

US drug regulators explain that Pfizer’s vaccine is 95 percent effective in preventing the contraction of COVID. Moderna is 94.1 percent effective and Johnson & Johnson created a vaccine that’s 66.9 percent effective. These percentages are for two weeks after full vaccination.

Idaho has fewer breakthrough cases, and South Carolina has 134 such cases. Dozens of residents in Florida got COVID more than 14 days after the final vaccination.

The Minnesota Department of Health issued advisories about the cases.

In the March 2 release, state officials said they were “investigating COVID-19 infections (symptomatic and asymptomatic) among people who are appropriately vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine, also called vaccine breakthrough cases.”

In this way, Minnesota health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be able to “understand to what extent sub-optimal primary immune responses among specific groups, waning immunity, vaccine compromise, and viral mutations or variants may impact susceptibility to COVID-19 infection after vaccination.”

“Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from vaccine breakthrough cases is unknown and therefore isolation (separation from others) is recommended until 10 days have passed since symptom onset (or test date for asymptomatic cases), symptoms are improving, and patient has been afebrile for at least 24 hours, without fever-reducing medication.”
