The Arizona Department of Health Services is investigating 271 COVID-19 infections in patients who were vaccinated against the virus, 3 On Your Side has learned.
Health officials call these “breakthrough” infections. Out of the 271 confirmed breakthrough cases in Arizona, ADHS says no deaths have been reported.
“ADHS is partnering with the CDC and local health departments to investigate breakthrough COVID-19 infections among people who received the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Holly Poynter, a spokesperson for ADHS. “We are working to identify patterns or trends in patient characteristics, the administered vaccine, or variant strains.”
