Vaccinated people who are infected with COVID-19 and get a so-called breakthrough case that leads to severe illness are more likely to be older and have preexisting health conditions, a new study found.
“Overall, older population with underlying heart or lung disease, or with weakened immune system were the most highly represented in those with breakthrough cases with symptoms,” Dr. Hyung Chun of the Yale School of Medicine, who led the study, wrote in an email.
