Given the increasing evidence that fully vaccinated people can get infected with COVID-19, it is important to track the information about the vaccines’ effectiveness and how they keep ourselves and others safe.
To date, more than 5.1 million residents are fully vaccinated in LA County, represented by the big green box. The tiny purple box in the left lower corner of the green box below represents the 27,331 fully vaccinated people who tested positive for COVID as of August 17, 2021, representing less than 1% of those fully vaccinated.
Of those fully vaccinated and tested positive, 0.014% were hospitalized, and only 0.0013% died.
This data should provide significant reassurance that fully vaccinated people remain at relatively low risk for becoming infected with COVID-19 and even lower risk for having a bad outcome if they are infected.
