246 “Fully Vaccinated” Michigan Residents Catch COVID-19, 3 Die

So much for the COVID jabs ;100% effective&; at preventing &;serious illness.&; Michigan, now the epicenter of the American COVID outbreak, is desperately begging the federal government for more vaccines. But reports about a rash of infections in &;fully vaccinated&; patients might provoke a rethink. The  that as many as 246 vaccinated Michigan residents later tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, including three who have died. The cases were reported between Jan. 1 and March 31, and the 246 had a positive test 14 or more days after the last dose in the vaccine series, said Lynn Sutfin, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
&;Some of these individuals may ultimately be excluded from this list due to continuing to test positive from a recent infection prior to being fully vaccinated,&; she said. &;These cases are undergoing further review to determine if they meet other CDC criteria for determination of potential breakthrough, including the absence of a positive antigen or PCR test less than 45 days prior to the post-vaccination positive test. In general, these persons have been more likely to be asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic compared with vaccinated persons.&;
The department had hospitalization data for 117 of the cases, but 129 were incomplete, Sutfin added. The three deaths were all &;persons 65 years or older,&; and two of them died within three weeks of completion of vaccination, she said. &;While the majority of the population develops full immunity within 14 days of completion of their vaccine series, a small proportion appear to take onger to mount a full antibody response.&; Of the 117 with data available, 11 were hospitalized, 103 were not hospitalized, and 3 are reported as unknown, Sutfin said. As of April 4, about 2.95 million residents, or about 36.5% of Michigan&;s population, have been vaccinated, either with one or two doses, according to the state website. About 4.7M doses had been administered.
New cases have surged over the last month, pushing the 7-day average to its highest level since late last year. Even deaths have started to creep higher, a possible effect of mutant strains that are spreading faster in the state. Republished from with permission
