The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that more than 9,000 Americans contracted COVID-19 after getting vaccinated. It registered a total of 9,245 so-called breakthrough COVID-19 cases as of April 26. However, this official number from the CDC might be larger due to actual figures being under-reported.

A breakthrough COVID-19 case happens when a person becomes infected with the Wuhan coronavirus two or more weeks after they get the final vaccine dose. Still, the CDC reiterates that vaccines are effective and the breakthrough cases only represent a small percentage of the immunized population.
The federal agency said that such vaccine breakthrough cases are “expected.” It elaborated: “COVID-19 vaccines are effective and are critical [tools] to bring the pandemic under control. However, no vaccines are 100 percent effective at preventing illness. There will be a small percentage of people who are fully vaccinated who still get sick, are hospitalized or die from COVID-19.”
About nine percent of the 9,245 breakthrough cases – amounting to 835 patients – required hospitalization. Of the 835 hospitalized breakthrough patients, 241 of them were reportedly asymptomatic or having an illness unrelated to COVID-19. Meanwhile, the CDC recorded 132 deaths from the more than 9,000 breakthrough infections.
The CDC collated the breakthrough cases from data submitted by 46 U.S. states and territories. Four areas did not turn in figures to the public health agency. Actual figures are likely larger than the official CDC tally as its surveillance system depends on voluntary reporting from state health departments. Lack of testing can cause other cases of breakthrough COVID-19 infection to slip through.
The public health agency continued: “These surveillance data help identify patterns and look for signals among vaccine breakthrough cases. As CDC and state health departments shift to focus only on investigating vaccine breakthrough cases that result in hospitalization and death, those will be regularly updated.”
People who get certain vaccines are more prone to contract certain Wuhan coronavirus variants
As of writing, three vaccines against the Wuhan coronavirus have been approved for emergency use in the U.S. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines received the green light in December 2020 while the Johnson & Johnson vaccine got the thumbs-up for emergency use in February.
The messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna require two doses. Clinical trials showed the Pfizer vaccine having a 95 percent effectivity rate against infections, while the Moderna vaccine reported 94 percent. J&J’s adenoviral vector vaccine was tested when different Wuhan coronavirus variants were already circulating. The single-dose shot reported a 66.9 percent effectivity rate in preventing infections.
The state of Israel predominantly used the Pfizer mRNA vaccine for its immunization drive, alongside a small supply of Moderna vaccine doses. However, a study by Israeli researchers found that those inoculated with the two-dose Pfizer vaccine could still contract two particular Wuhan coronavirus strains.
Researchers from Tel Aviv University and Israeli health care provider Clalit Health Services looked at COVID-19 test results from 800 Israelis. Half of these results came from vaccinated Israelis while the other half were from unvaccinated citizens, the Times of Israel reported. Through the study, the researchers wanted to see if vaccinated people are more likely to be infected with coronavirus variants compared to the unvaccinated people.
The researchers found that the people who completed the two-dose Pfizer vaccine regimen are eight times more likely to contract the South African B1351 variant. They also discovered that the B117 strain from the U.K. is more prevalent in people who got at least one Pfizer vaccine dose. The so-called British variant had the same prevalence rate as its South African counterpart in those who completed two doses.
Lead researcher Adi Stern remarked: “We found a disproportionately higher rate of the South African variant among people vaccinated with a second dose, compared to the unvaccinated group. This means that the South African variant is able, to some extent, to break through the vaccine’s protection.”
Despite the higher prevalence of the B1351 strain in the samples they observed, the variant only comprises one percent of cases in the entire country. A major wave of infections in Israel early this year was attributed to the B117 variant.
However, Stern surmised that the British strain may have kept the spread of the South African variant at bay. “It is possible that the extensive spread of the British variant is blocking the spread of the South African variant. Because it spread so effectively, it basically didn’t allow the South African [strain] to spread,” Stern said.

‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $4100 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
