A CNN report of an analysis by Kaiser Family Foundation using Official US data, says that less than 1 percent of fully vaccinated people experienced a breakthrough infection.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says latest data shows less than .004% of fully vaccinated against COVID-19 experience a breakthrough case that results in hospitalization. Of this amount .001% of fully vaccinated people die of COVID-19 (Wion Web Team). The analysis also claimed over 90% of cases and more than 95% of hospitalizations and deaths are amongst the unvaccinated population. To put into perspective, of the over 163 million fully vaccinated people in the US, 6,600 experienced sever cases of COVID-19.

About half of the states report data on those who have experienced COVID as a breakthrough case. Within those states, less than 1% of fully vaccinated people have experienced a breakthrough infection. This range goes from 0.01% in Connecticut to 0.9% in Oklahoma.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky states COVID-19 has currently surpassed the peak of cases set last summer according to the seven-day average of daily cases. According to the CDC more than half of the entire American population are not fully vaccinated.
