Influence of age (Vaxzevria and CoronaVac vaccines)

Aging influences COVID-19 severity and response to vaccination, but previous vaccine effectiveness analyzes lack the power to evaluate its role in subgroups within the elderly age group.

Prof. Barral-Netto and his team analyzed the impact of age on viral vector and inactivated virus vaccines' effectiveness, the main platforms used in low- and middle-income countries.

They report a retrospective longitudinal study of nearly 76 million Brazilian vaccinees from January 18 to July 24, 2021, evaluating documented infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), COVID-19-related hospitalization, ICU admission, and death.

In this webinar, Prof. Barral-Netto reports if the tested vaccines have been effective in protecting against infection, hospitalization and death and how vaccine effectiveness varies in different age groups. He will also include other aspects such as waning, the impact of variants and tell if he recommends further booster vaccination in elders.
