What experts say CDC's latest report on breakthrough cases means

Published May 25, 2021


Yahoo News quoted John Sellick in an article on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest report on breakthrough infections in the U.S. among people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The report found 10,262 COVID-19 breakthrough infections occurred in nearly 101 million fully vaccinated people between January and April 2021. “For those of us who are of average health, are fully vaccinated and don’t have severe underlying medical problems, breakthrough infections are unlikely to be a huge problem,” says Sellick. “But highly immunosuppressed people have to be careful, just in case.”
