Alaska: 30% vaccine breakthrough in July 2021

“For people who were vaccinated more than 150 days ago, the vaccine effectiveness is about 73% against SARS CoV-2 infection. If you’re looking just at the delta variant, then (vaccine effectiveness) drops down to about 66%.” Alaska recorded 17 COVID deaths in July. Four of those people were fully vaccinated. Of COVID-19 cases requiring hospitalization in July, 19% of the patients were vaccinated.
