Note that these tables use the DOH’s standard 2019 Census data to find the unvaxed population, so are in error, according to our analysis.
- This post is an update to the Covid vaccination breakthrough data table for the overall Minnesota population published on 11/30/2022 here: https://healthy-skeptic.com/2022/11/30/breakthrough-events-november-25/. This week’s update adds data through the week ending 11/06/2022, published by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) on 12/01/2022.
- The breakthrough data files are available from MDH here, https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/stats/vbt.html , in the notes under the graphic images.
- Fig. 1: This table displays the total cases, hospital admissions, and deaths that occurred each week among the unvaccinated, vaccinated but not boosted, and vaccinated and boosted populations. Data for the week of 11/06/2022 has been added this week, and there have been very minor updated data throughout the table. The very gradual reduction in cases, hospital admissions, and deaths that we have seen for several months resumes. There was a very small increase in Fully Vaccinated cases and admissions the week of 11/06/2022, but this looks like normal fluctuations in the data. There is no sign of any increase in activity that might indicate a new surge in cases is imminent, as being discussed in various media reports recently.

- MDH defines the fully vaccinated (what we have termed vaccinated but not boosted) as those who have not received a booster after completing their primary vaccination series, and had been vaccinated at least 14 days prior to testing positive.
- MDH defines the boosted as those who have received any additional vaccination shots after completing their primary vaccination series, and also received the booster at least 14 days prior to testing positive. In addition, booster doses were only counted after 8/13/2021, the date the CDC first began recommending booster shots.
