Health officials told the Detroit News that the team (which reported cases between January 1 and March 31) tested positive at least two weeks after receiving the last dose of vaccination.
State Department of Health and Human Services spokesperson Lynn Sutfin said in an email on Monday: “Because they continue to test positive from recent infections before they are fully vaccinated, some of these people eventually May be excluded from the list.”
“These cases are undergoing further review to determine whether they meet other CDC standards to determine potential breakthroughs, including the absence of a positive antigen or PCR test less than 45 days before a positive test after vaccination,” Sutfin said.

Sutfin said: “Among the 117 hospitalization data entered, 11 were hospitalized, 103 were not hospitalized, and 3 were reported as unknown.”
She said the three deaths were all 65 years of age or older, and two of them “within three weeks after the vaccination was completed.”
She said: “Although most people are fully immune within 14 days after completing the vaccination series, a small percentage of people seem to take longer to develop a complete antibody response.
