You can also find more breakthrough data broken down by age group on the state’s weekly report, COVID-19 Cases, Hospitalizations, and Deaths by Vaccination Status.
When you get your COVID-19 vaccine, or your booster if you’re already fully vaccinated, you protect yourself from serious illness, winding up in the hospital—and death. Everyone 5 and older is eligible for the vaccine. And everyone 12 and older is now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose. Find your dose today at tpchd.org/vaxtothefuture.
