Abstract

Real world studies have demonstrated impressive effectiveness of the BNT162b2 COVID-19 vaccine in preventing symptomatic and asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection. We describe an outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 infections in a hospital with high vaccine uptake. We found low secondary attack rate(7%), suggesting low infectivity of vaccinated persons with vaccine breakthrough SARS-CoV-2 infections.
