Description of participants: Adults aged 18 and up without previous SARS-CoV-2 infection residing in Pescara, Italy
Follow-up duration (months): 4.65
|Variant description :
Variant name: Alpha|
Evidence: Indirect evidence (prevalence of variant in the population: 82.8% )
The published report was used in data extraction and risk of bias assessment. Of the vaccinated subjects, 52.8% received only one dose within the follow-up; 68.5% received BNT162b2 vaccine; 24.4% ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, and 7.0% mRNA-1273. Among those who received the second dose, 93.8% were vaccinated with BNT162b2, only 0.1% (n = 18) with ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, and the remaining 6.1% received mRNA-1273.
Concerns about uncontrolled confounding, a possiblity of selection bias for infection status after two doses, lack of information about missing data and possible bias in assessment of infection status.
