Why do breakthrough COVID-19 infections occur in the vaccinated?

Abstract:
More than 7 billion vaccinations against SARS-CoV-2 have now been administered.1 Clinical trials and national epidemiological studies have shown that a variety of vaccines are effective in reducing cases, hospital admissions and deaths from COVID-19 in the months after vaccination. However, despite effective vaccine campaigns in many countries, small but increasing numbers of breakthrough infections are being reported in fully vaccinated people.
