8,700 Vaccinated People Test Positive for COVID in New York
A very small fraction of vaccinated New Yorkers tested positive for COVID after getting vaccinated.
About 8,700 vaccinated New Yorkers, out of 11 million, have tested positive for COVID after getting vaccinated, according to the New York State Department of Health.
The New York State Department of Health released new COVID numbers to The Associated Press as new cases of COVID and COVID hospitalizations continue to increase across New York.
Just 0.079 percent of vaccinated New Yorkers have tested positive for COVID after completing their vaccine series, according to the New York State Department of Health.
Since April 1, about 244,000 New Yorkers have tested positive for COVID-19. 3.5 percent of those cases are from vaccinated New Yorkers.
State officials did not provide details about how many vaccinated New Yorks have been hospitalized or died from the virus.
“We are continuing to investigate the number of fully vaccinated people who may have been hospitalized or passed away,” New York State Department of Health spokesperson Abigail Barker told The Associated Press.
On Wednesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo confirmed 74 percent of all New Yorkers 18 and older have received at least one vaccine while 67.5 percent have completed their vaccine series.
Nearly 56 percent of all eligible New Yorkers are fully vaccinated while about 62 percent have at least one vaccine dose.
