Breakthrough case in the four counties
Vaccine breakthrough cases are U.S. residents with RNA or SARS-CoV2 antigen detected in a collected respiratory sample greater than or equal to 14 days after completing all recommended doses of an FDA-cleared COVID-19 vaccine.
A complete vaccination consists of two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine (Janssen). As of February 1, 2021, the overall rate of vaccinated cases for the Quad County area is 1,144 per 100,000 population. This means that of the total population of the Quad County area that is fully vaccinated, about 1,100 in 100,000 people are cases.
As of February 1, 2021, the overall rate of unvaccinated cases for the Quad County area is approximately 12,600 people per 100,000 cases. It is important to note that no vaccine is 100 percent effective in preventing the disease. As the number of people fully vaccinated increases and community transmission increases, breakthrough cases are expected to increase.
