Federal health authorities in the United States confirmed on Tuesday cases in which some people vaccinated against COVID-19 were still infected with the virus.

According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 10,262 people who had completed the vaccination process subsequently tested positive for the coronavirus.

This is a low number of cases considering that in the US around 101 million adults were already fully vaccinated against COVID-19 when these positive cases occurred, between January 1 and April 30, 2021.


Most of the COVID-19 infections in vaccinated people were in women, and 27% of the patients showed no symptoms of the virus.

10% of them had to be hospitalized, and two vaccinated people died.

In total, 64% of COVID-19 positive cases in vaccinated people were identified as variants of the virus, the majority being of the British strain.

Currently, more than 130 million people in the US have completed the coronavirus vaccination process, according to CDC data.

It’s not just parents who feel this way. Doctors and healthcare providers are also concerned that our children under 12 are now the vulnerable population.
