It’s unclear why some residents eventually contract SARS-CoV-2 after being vaccinated, said Dr. Natasha Chida, an infectious disease expert and assistant professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins University.
The coronavirus vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson are all very protective, she said, but they’re still not 100% effective at blocking infection.
“It’s just, from the numbers standpoint, going to happen,” Chida said of breakthrough cases.
