The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced its findings on Tuesday that show over 10,000 vaccine breakthrough infections had been reported as of April 30 out of approximately 101 million Americans who had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The CDC's data showed a total of 10,262 vaccine breakthrough infections from 46 U.S. states and territories out of about 101 million people who had been fully vaccinated by the time of the April 30 findings.

Among these cases, 6,446 (63 percent) of the breakthrough infections occurred in females, and the median patient age was 58 years.

Furthermore, 2,725 (27 percent) of these infections were asymptomatic, 995 (10 percent) of patients were known to be hospitalized, and 160 (2 percent) patients died.

Among the 995 hospitalized patients in the report, 289 (29 percent) were asymptomatic or hospitalized for a reason unrelated to COVID-19. The median age of patients who died was 82 years, and 28 (18 percent) were asymptomatic or died from a cause unrelated to COVID-19.

The findings noted undercounting of the breakthrough infections is likely due to the national surveillance system relying "on passive and voluntary reporting, and data might not be complete or representative." The CDC said that many people with vaccine breakthrough infections, especially those who are asymptomatic or who experience only mild symptoms, might not seek testing.
