As stated by the IN.gov Vaccine Dashboard:
A breakthrough refers to any individual testing positive for COVID-19 at least 14 days after their final dose (or single-dose) vaccination.
If you pass away from COVID-19 complications after your first dose in a two-dose series, you’re considered unvaccinated.
Individuals who experience a breakthrough case or hospitalization within 14 days after the 2nd dose in a two-dose series are deemed unvaccinated.
Thus, the number of individuals that contracted COVID-19 following inoculation is likely higher than the official statistics.
Indiana has recorded 218,793 breakthrough COVID-19 cases (6.047% of fully vaccinated individuals), but this figure doesn’t account for adverse reactions to the experimental injections.
International Business Times reported:
During the three-week period, the number of breakthrough COVID-19 infections also increased by 106,020. The numbers bring Indiana’s total number of cases among the fully vaccinated to 218,793 from 112,773. At least 6.047% of the state’s vaccinated population have now tested positive for the virus.
COVID-19 cases among the unvaccinated and vaccinated in Indiana have risen by 19% over the past 14 days, an analysis of data conducted by CNN found.
Between Jan. 8 and 20, health officials recorded 17,684 new infections, bringing the state’s total to 1,524,527 since the beginning of the pandemic. The state’s dashboard puts Indiana’s seven-day all-test positivity rate at 30.4% and its seven-day unique individuals’ positivity rate at 44.7%.
At least 74.3% of all cases sampled in Indiana were caused by the highly transmissible Omicron variant. The Delta variant, which was previously the dominant strain in the state, now accounts for only 25.3% of all cases sampled.
