"While vaccination has substantially reduced the risk of infection among vaccinated individuals, breakthrough cases do occur. Infections in vaccinated individuals are less severe and more likely to be asymptomatic, but the risk of onward transmission of infection from fully vaccinated individuals is unclear. This Evidence Brief summarizes evidence on risk of transmission from vaccinated cases of COVID-19, as well as jurisdictional guidance on the management of fully vaccinated cases." - Public Health Ontario
