As the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out continues worldwide to prevent the virus from spreading, an Illinois doctor says there is still a slim chance a person can get COVID-19 despite being vaccinated.


Statistically speaking, people have around a 5% chance of getting COVID-19 after being vaccinated, according to OSF General Surgeon Dr. John Wieland of Bloomington.

According to Bloomberg, more than 26 million doses of the COVID vaccine in 43 countries have been administered.
