U.S. Rep. Gallagher: Leads Republicans in calling on CDC to release info on breakthrough infections of COVID-19

Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today led more than 40 members of the House Republican conference in calling on CDC Director Rochelle Walensky to publish the available data on the frequency of breakthrough infections of COVID-19 in vaccinated individuals. The letter, which was first reported by Fox News, highlights how the CDC stopped collecting this information in May and expresses concern that the CDC is unable to make reliable predictions with existing data. The letter also expresses concern that these deficiencies hinder the CDC’s ability to know how breakthrough infections will drive an increase in COVID-19 cases.

In part, the lawmakers write, “We are deeply concerned that the CDC has released blanket guidance seeking to reduce this transmission when they have not even provided data on the frequency of breakthrough infections to the public. Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that the science has evolved with the virus. We ask that you provide us and the American people that science.”
