CDC Monitoring Post-Vaccine COVID-19 Cases

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it is monitoring cases of people developing COVID-19 post-vaccination but that such happenings aren’t unexpected.

A CDC official told CNN that logging “breakthrough” infections is important for staying ahead of new mutations of the virus that may become resistant to vaccines.

“We are tracking and looking at sequencing those vaccine breakthrough cases to see what are the similarities of the cases,” the official said, CNN reported.

The agency encourages health care providers and local health departments to report such cases to their state health department and for those infected post-vaccination to report to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting Systems, or VAERS, CNN reported.

The CDC official said the agency and the Department of Health and Human Services are working together to study which variants may be disproportionately causing infection among the vaccinated.

As of Wednesday, the U.S. has administered more than 128 million doses of coronavirus vaccine, with nearly 46 million people fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.
