OHA releases new COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough report

OHA’s latest update on COVID-19 breakthrough cases, released Thursday, reported 2,532 cases of COVID-19 in the week from March 6 to March 12.

Of these cases, 2,370, or 93.6%, were unvaccinated humans, and 945, or 37.3%, were vaccine breakthrough cases. Among the breakthrough cases, 468, or 49.5%, were fully vaccinated and boosted.

The median age of the breakthrough cases during this period was 51. Seven breakthrough cases involved residents of care facilities, senior living communities, or other parish care environments. There were 43 cases in persons aged 12 to 17.

To date, there have been 195,600 COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases in Oregon. Of these cases, 45,386, or 23.2%, were fully vaccinated. The median age for all cases is 41.

The report shows that the incidence of COVID-19 in unvaccinated people last week was approximately 3.5 times higher than in vaccinated and 4.5 times higher than in people who are fully vaccinated and boosted.

To date, 2.5% of all vaccine breakthrough cases have been hospitalized and 0.6% have died. The median age of vaccinated persons who have died is 80.

“Vaccination remains the most effective tool for reducing the spread of COVID-19,” OHA said. Oregonians are encouraged to get vaccinated and, if eligible, to get a booster shot.
