Through the end of September 2021, a total of 13,265 Covid-19 vaccine breakthrough cases were documented among Alaska residents, according to the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services. An additional 2,906 cases occurred among Alaska residents who were partially vaccinated.

The state notes that the incidence of Covid-19 among vaccinated persons has remained consistently lower than among persons who were unvaccinated.

As the number of vaccinated persons increases in Alaska, so do breakthrough cases. But in September the breakthrough cases set a new high of 35.2 percent of all known Covid cases.

Alaskans started receiving Covid vaccines in March, when Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy announced the shot would be available for all individuals who live or work in Alaska and are age 16 and older, making Alaska the first state in the nation to remove eligibility requirements. By May, Alaskans as young as 12 were allowed to get the vaccine.

Vaccinations for Covid are reducing hospital stays for those Alaskans who choose to get the vaccine, but since July, the rate of hospitalization for Covid breakthrough cases jumped dramatically has averaged 56 cases per month.

The State’s official position is that:

  • Covid-19 vaccines continue to provide strong protection, especially against hospitalization and death.
  • Most Covid-19 hospitalizations in Alaska could be prevented by vaccination.
  • Covid-19 cases have become more common among fully vaccinated persons than they were in the initial months after vaccine roll-out, but fully vaccinated people continue to be less likely to have Covid-19 than people who aren’t fully vaccinated.
  • CDC recommends that fully vaccinated persons wear masks in public indoor settings in areas with substantial to highcommunity transmission.
  • While people can be infected with Covid-19 multiple times, prior infection confers partial protection. Vaccination provides additional protection in those who have been infected and is recommended regardless of history of prior infection.

  • “Breakthrough cases”
    .
    It’s a feature, not just a glitch, of the so-called “vaccines” (sic).

  • “Covid-19 cases have become more common among fully vaccinated persons than they were in the initial months after vaccine roll-out, but fully vaccinated people continue to be less likely to have Covid-19 than people who aren’t fully vaccinated.”

    I’m sorry, State of Alaska, but two opposing statements cannot simultaneously be true.

    Just sayin’. . .

    • Vote for Summer. I just needed to say that.

    • What’s opposing in those two statements?

      • More common to have C among fully vaxxed, but…less likely to have C than non-vaxed…

        I believe that’s the nonsensical sentence.

        • Dan,
          You need to read the actual statement again, your statement is nonsensical. The one quoted makes perfect sense.
          .
          Let’s break this down, shall we?
          .
          “Covid-19 cases have become more common among fully vaccinated persons than they were in the initial months after vaccine roll-out” logic tells us that there are more people vaccinated now than when the initial roll-out of the vaccine started. If 5% of vaccinated people see breakthrough cases then going from 0% vaccinated to 60% vaccinated there will obviously be a rise in the number of breakthrough cases. Also, as we know this vaccine isn’t perfect and offers less protection to the vaccinated over time.
          .
          That in no way contradicts with “fully vaccinated people continue to be less likely to have Covid-19 than people who aren’t fully vaccinated.” Even with a vaccine that isn’t perfect and offers less protection to the vaccinated over time, it still hold true that those who have been vaccinated are less likely than the unvaccinated to have covid.

  • I would like to personally recognize and thank Dr. Anthony “Gain-of-Function” Fauci for helping to enable and create the virus that has led to this wonderful pandemic. What a guy. That said, I would not want to be standing too close to him when his personal judgment day arrives.

    • You mean the face of science, who has nothing to do with the Wuhan Institute? Is this like Al Gore being the face of climate change, when every scientist on earth agrees that climate change is real, but you still use Al Gore as some sort of face to attack? Why not try to use science to make your case, instead of going after one person out of millions?

      • John, why do you insist on gaslighting yourself?

        Many of us have broken free of the illusion, but you keep stuffing your head back in the box over and over.

        Sad.

      • The same Al Gore that said coastal cities would be underwater by now? That guy? Climate change is real, it is always changing and has far more to do with solar activity than anything else.

  • Death comes for all of us.
    There is nothing that can stop it.
    Live while you can. Learn what you can. Love all you can.
    Do not be a slave to the fear of the inevitable.
    Starve the beast.

    • And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

      And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

      And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

      And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

      And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

      And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

      And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

      And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

      And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

      And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

      And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

      And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

      And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

      And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

      And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

      And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

      For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

    Thanks for reporting!!

    “ The state notes that the incidence of Covid-19 among vaccinated persons has remained consistently lower than among persons who were not unvaccinated.”

  • The covid shots are making you all look Older… look at yourselves in the Mirror!

    • Older because we are. Not from a shot.

    • The vaxxed do look kind of sad. One of the known side effects is facial drooping. A special variation of Bell’s palsy I’ve heard.

  • While there have been over 13,000 vaccine breakthrough cases since January as the title of the article suggests, there have also been over 48,000 total cases statewide in that time. Currently the majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are from the minority of the population in state who are unvaccinated. In countries with high vaccination rates the majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are in the unvaccinated. There are a few extremely high vaccinated countries where the unvaccinated do not make up a majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths but they severely make up a disproportionate number of the cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.

    • “The data on COVID-19 differs wildly from country to country. Look at the figures for Italy and Germany. At the time of writing, Italy has 69,176 recorded cases and 6,820 deaths, a rate of 9.9 percent. Germany has 32,986 cases and 157 deaths, a rate of 0.5 percent. Do we think that the strain of virus is so different in these nearby countries as to virtually represent different diseases? Or that the populations are so different in their susceptibility to the virus that the death rate can vary more than twentyfold? If not, we ought to suspect systematic error, that the COVID-19 data we are seeing from different countries is not directly comparable.
      Look at other rates: Spain 7.1 percent, US 1.3 percent, Switzerland 1.3 percent, France 4.3 percent, South Korea 1.3 percent, Iran 7.8 percent. We may very well be comparing apples with oranges. Recording cases where there was a positive test for the virus is a very different thing to recording the virus as the main cause of death.”

    • It’s easier to pull something out of your hiney and start preaching it as gospel then to quote the statistics. I don’t think they’re being belligerent. I think they truly believe what they say.

    • Steve-O, battled Covid-19 lately? Just wondering because in my peer group of ” Covid Survivors” we collectively noticed equally high numbers of cases amongst the ” double jabbed” as found amongst the untermenschen or non- clotshotted.
      What was interesting was that the health officials STOPPED asking whether the patient had been exposed to the Pfizer Clot Shot or not. Hmm, seems you might want to cast some doubt on your official numbers listed above.
      I realize that this report comes as a ” Breakthrough ” to many who trust Dr. Zink and the Dog Lover known as Anthony Fauci.
      Steven, wake the hell up, your Government has consistently lied to you!

      • Nic,
        If you think this is the first time your government has lied to you, then I’m glad you’ve woken up to reality. Now it’s time to use your brain and figure out what information makes the most sense. Exercise that newfound muscle and explore all possibilities. Gather data and explore, do not trust everything you read, even if it sounds good. I know it’s fun to call those you disagree with names, but instead of that bring facts and data to counter their argument. Open your eyes, see what is going on around you. There are people lying to your face and telling you what to believe without providing any information to support it.

    • Ireland is very highly vaccinated, I believe over 90%. They are doing very poorly with covid as of late. It’s still unknown if all these with the jab will ever achieve any type of immunity. Meanwhile the Centers to Deceive and Control report that those unvacinated that have recovered from covid are not known to spread the disease.
      Love the Mark Twain quote 👌

      • You should review where you get your information from, while Ireland is highly vaccinated the majority of hospitalizations and deaths are among the small percentage of unvaccinated and the number of cases are disproportionately made up of the small percentage of unvaccinated. Using Ireland as a talking point against vaccination is a losing talking point, as the evidence is clear that vaccination in Ireland is working to protect people from becoming severely ill or dead. Compare the numbers in Ireland to the numbers in Alaska on a person by person basis, you might be surprised.

        • Steve-O And then there is the confounding data from some countries in Africa where the vaccination rates are pitifully low, but the death rate from Covid is much smaller then countries that are highly vaccinated. There has been some causal observation that the use of Ivermectin by large portions of the population for River Blindness may have also protected the population from Covid, as may have the use of Hydroxychloroquine for malaria. The USA does not have an epidemic of the unvaccinated, we have an epidemic of the untreated! Criminal!

          • It’s certainly possible that Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine have worked wonders in third world counties, it’s more probable that the record keeping isn’t quite up to par. I still haven’t seen the mass migration from 1st world countries to 3rd world countries by those who seem to think there is netter medical care in 3rd world countries.
            .
            We have different rates from state to state, Southern states and northern states experience surges at different times, states with higher rates of vaccination experience different rates than states with lower rates of vaccination.
            .
            The game of whack-a-mole that people play to try and reinforce the Ivermectin or anti-vaccination belief system will never end. Facts don’t matter to true believers, never have and never will.

        • Steve O How about Deaths hitting new highs in Singapore (85% of the population fully vaccinated – NOT adults, the entire population):

          • More whack-a-mole. More of the same with unvaccinated disproportionately making up 10 to 11 times of the critically ill as the vaccinated.
            .
            From the Singapore Ministry of Health “Over the past 7 days, the number of fully vaccinated and non-fully vaccinated cases who are critically ill in the ICU are at 0.5 and 5.4 per 100,000 population respectively. Over the same period, the number of fully vaccinated and non-fully vaccinated cases who died are 0.1 and 0.9 per 100,000 population respectively. Among seniors aged 60 and above, the number of fully vaccinated and non-fully vaccinated cases who are critically ill in the ICU are 1.9 and 47.6 respectively. The number of fully vaccinated and non-fully vaccinated seniors who died are 0.4 and 9.0 respectively.”
            .
            Singapore has roughly 8 times the population of Alaska, they’ve had 576 covid deaths while Alaska has had 530. Are you trying to make the case for more or less vaccinations?

    • Steve-O – you asked “What’s opposing in those two statements?” in an earlier comment.
      Here you state “There are a few extremely high vaccinated countries where the unvaccinated do not make up a majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths but they severely make up a disproportionate number of the cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.”

      • And I will ask again, what’s opposing in those two statements?

        • You stated “There are a few extremely high vaccinated countries where the unvaccinated do not make up a majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, but then you severely (severed) the unvaxxed figures from the overall narrative, showing only that the cases within the unvaxxed indicate a greater percentage of them have hospitalizations and deaths; obscuring the fact that it is the vaxxed which make up the majority of cases overall.
          That’s two standards of measurement. Which is it? SAE or Metric?

          • Jose,
            Besides your obvious issues with understanding the English language, the use of how quotation marks work, and units of measure, your are still mistaken as to what was said. What I said was: “In countries with high vaccination rates the majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are in the unvaccinated. There are a few extremely high vaccinated countries where the unvaccinated do not make up a majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths but they severely make up a disproportionate number of the cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.” I never removed the unvaccinated from the conversation, as they are a central part of the conversation.
            .
            And not only can both statements be true, they are both demonstrably true.
            .
            When simple math tells us that 10-15% makes up 50-90% (disproportionate majority and outright majority) of the problem, or simply 30-50% (disproportionate amount) of the problem, then the majority of the problem is with the 10-15%

  • “It is much easier to fool somebody than to convince them that they have been fooled.” Mark Twain

  • We get the flu shot every year for a reason.

    • DB, this is not like other years! Many have taken the covid therapy shot. No one knows how the flu shot will mix with the MRNA shot. I had read several months ago that they may not mix well.
      No one for that matter knows what the long term affects of the covid shot will be. We are in the beginning of the rigorous human trials.

  • Pseudo-science propaganda. Amazing how so many people blindly roll up their sleeves and lives to conform to social steering. Let’s go Branden and all those who think this is an actual threat. The threat comes from the volunteer alteration of what is reality and made-made genocide.
    This nothing more than the next step after the BS climate hoax. Oh yeah, that is back too. Are you still going to buy that like this plandemic? Agenda 21 at it’s implementation.

  • I gotta be honest, saying this as a Christian: nothing turns me off more than someone who posts a wall of Scripture acting as if that, in and of itself, will win a secular argument.

  • These dangerous, experimental pseudo-vaccines do not work as well as the known therapeutics. But our government does not allow their use. Why?
    Answer that question and you will have this Kung Flu Scamdemic figured out.

  • Might be fun to compare the number of “breakthrough” cases between vaccinated people and people with natural immunity…

  • Here is an article that supports our courageous doctors who believe in Patient First medicine and reject the political dogma coming from CDC and the mainstream media. See ‘https://flagandcross.com/cdc-admits-it-has-no-record-of-unvaxxed-individual-with-covid-natural-immunity-spreading-the-virus/’

    The article reports that CDC admitted that they have not had any documented cases of an unvaccinated individual with natural immunity spreading the virus. see ‘https://twitter.com/MichaelPSenger/status/1458953737397948418’ for the CDC letter.

    Additionally an Israeli study showed that vaccinated people “had a 13.06-fold … increased risk for breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to those previously infected,”

    Obviously, mandatory vaccination will not solve our problem. Consequently, we need other alternatives, which the brave doctors under attack are providing.

    Thank you for covering this important issue.
