At least 125,000 fully vaccinated Americans have tested positive for Covid and 1,400 of those have died, according to data collected by NBC News. The total number of breakthrough cases is likely higher than 125,683, since nine states, including Pennsylvania and Missouri, did not provide any information, while 11, like Florida, did not provide death and hospitalization totals. Four states gave death and hospitalization numbers, but not the full tally of cases.
So far, there have been 103 vaccine breakthrough cases in North Dakota. Of those, six people were hospitalized. State health experts say their symptoms varied.
“We have some people that are completely asymptomatic. We do have some people that are quite a bit sicker. It still kind of depends on the age of the person, the underlying health conditions. All that stuff that kind of affects your COVID outcomes, still affects you the same even after you’ve been vaccinated,” said North Dakota Department of Health Immunization Surveillance Coordinator Jenny Galbraith.
