Number of Manitobans contracting COVID-19 after vaccination, as expected – fr


WINNIPEG – The Manitoba government has said the number of Manitobans who have contracted COVID-19 after receiving one or two doses of the vaccine is what health officials expect from any successful vaccination program.

The province provided the following information regarding COVID-19 infections reported 14 days or more after the first dose of the vaccine:

  • 410 Manitobans contracted COVID-19 14 days or more after their first vaccine, with a total of 26 hospitalizations and seven deaths. The province noted that all of those who died were people aged 65 and over;
  • 249 of these infections were in people aged 18 to 64 and 161 infections were in people 65 years and older;
  • 222 of those who contracted the disease 14 days or more after the first dose were women and 188 were men; and
  • 35 residents of personal care homes contracted COVID-19 14 days or more after their first dose of the vaccine.

The province provided the following figures for those who contracted COVID-19 seven or more days after their second dose of the vaccine:

  • 75 Manitobans were infected with COVID-19 seven days or more after their second vaccine, with seven hospitalizations and no deaths.
  • 47 of these infections affected people aged 18 to 64 and 27 people aged 65 and over. One infection involved a person under the age of 17;
  • 37 of the people who contracted the disease seven or more days after their second dose were women and 38 were men; and
  • Six residents of personal care homes received COVID-19 seven or more days after their second dose of the vaccine.

The Manitoba government has stated that any infection within 14 days of the first dose is not considered a vaccine breakthrough because the immune response takes about two weeks to develop after the first dose.

He noted that if a person contracts COVID-19 within the first two weeks after the first dose, they are given COVID-19 before the dose is given or before their body has time to develop an immune response. .

As of May 10, a total of 481,119 Manitobans had received at least one or two doses of the vaccine.
