INDIANAPOLIS (WANE) – Months into Indiana’s vaccine rollout, we are getting a better picture at how effective these shots are against the coronavirus.
According to recently published data from Indiana’s Department of Health, there have been 2,572 reported breakthrough cases among fully vaccinated Hoosiers. That is less than a tenth of a percent of the fully vaccinated population.
Among those breakthrough cases, only 125 (0.004% of the fully vaccinated population) of them had to be hospitalized, and 41 of them died. The IDOH clarifies that 93% of those deaths occurred in people 65 or older.
