May 26, 2021
Coronavirus infections remain rare among Minnesotans fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with 2,550 cases reported Tuesday by the state Department of Health.
These breakthrough infections represent 0.1% of the nearly 2.3 million people who have been fully vaccinated in Minnesota, indicating to state health officials that the vaccine is protective. Fully vaccinated means that 14 days have elapsed since people received their final shot in the one- or two-dose series.
"The data ... strengthen the argument that vaccine is a significantly valuable tool in this fight against COVID," state infectious disease director Kris Ehresmann said.
