FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — According to the Arkansas Department of Health, of the more than 915,000 people who are fully immunized in the state, 771 have tested positive for COVID-19.
That’s less than 0.08% of people who have been vaccinated.
This makes up 0.05% of the state’s overall cases, since the vaccine became available in mid- December.
The ADH classifies these as “breakthrough cases”.
Approximately 40% are in those 65 years and older, and about 20% are in nursing home residents.
These populations may not generate the same immunological response as they do in those who are younger.
