From July 1 to July 16, more than one-quarter of new infections were among fully vaccinated Angelenos, though county public health director Barbara Ferrer says those cases were not serious.
"Although vaccinated people are seeing a rise in new COVID diagnosis, they are primarily experiencing their infections, not as severe illnesses that bring them to the emergency room, but as bad colds," says Ferrer.
Meanwhile, the vast majority of severe COVID cases are still occurring among unvaccinated people.
