At least 246 people in Michigan who were “fully vaccinated”
against COVID-19 were later diagnosed with the virus, including
11 who were hospitalized and three who have died, according to
the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
More than 1.8 million Michigan residents have completed their
COVID-19 vaccinations, according to the state.
The case numbers, while minuscule, underscore two warnings made
consistently by public health officials: that the vaccines
provide no absolute guarantee against getting an infection, and
that masks and other safety protocols remain important after
being vaccinated as long as the pandemic continues to rage.
