From July through August, 172 incarcerated people, or 74% of the federal prison's population, were infected with Covid, according to the CDC.
The delta variant hit the unvaccinated harder, the agency said, infecting 39 out of the 42 prisoners who hadn't gotten the shots.
That compares to the 129 infections out of 185 fully vaccinated people.
Four people were hospitalized, three of whom were unvaccinated, and one person died, who was unvaccinated, according to the CDC.
The agency said the report demonstrates the potential for delta variant outbreaks in congregate settings, including correctional and detention facilities, even among places and populations with high vaccination coverage.
