Hawaii COVID-19 Breakthrough Case Report

November 12, 2021

A vaccine breakthrough infection occurs when a fully vaccinated person tests positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. 

The Hawaiʻi Department of Health (DOH) documents vaccine breakthrough hospitalizations and deaths, which can be an indication of vaccine effectiveness. Evaluation of vaccine effectiveness must be derived from carefully designed studies to avoid bias.  

Every COVID death is thoroughly investigated to ascertain vaccination status. Vaccine breakthrough status relies on information provided through case investigations and may represent an underestimate of the true number of breakthrough hospitalizations.  

Hawaii COVID-19 Health Equity Report

March 16, 2021

This report represents a collaborative effort between the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health and a diverse group of academic and community partners. As the magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic grew over time, it became clear that public health authorities could not adequately address the threats posed by this disease alone. Partnerships with the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander COVID-19 Response, Recovery, and Resilience Team and other community-based organizations serving the Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and Filipino communities as well as the input from the Office of Public Health Studies and Department of Native Hawaiian Health at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa were instrumental to mounting an effective response.
Their perspectives are included through the voices of the authors and contributors to this report who represent these organizations as well as through feedback provided by reviewers.
