Quad-County Breakthrough Cases
Vaccine breakthrough cases are U.S. residents with a SARS-CoV2 RNA or antigen detected in a respiratory specimen collected greater than or equal 14 days after they have completed all recommended doses of an FDA authorized COVID-19 vaccine. A complete vaccination is two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of the Johnson and Johnson (Janssen) vaccine. Since February 1, 2021, the overall vaccinated case rate for the Quad County region is 1,144 per 100k population. This means that out of the total population in the quad county region who are fully vaccinated, approximately 1,255 people out of 100k are cases. Since February 1, 2021, the overall unvaccinated case rate for the Quad County region is approximately 14,138 people out of 100k are cases. It is important to note that no vaccine is 100 percent effective at preventing illness. As the number of fully vaccinated people increases and community transmission increase, breakthrough cases are expected rise.
