COVID-19 Vaccination Status Among Adults Admitted to Intensive Care Units in Veneto, Italy

Educational Objective
To identify the key insights or developments described in this article
1 Credit CME

Effectiveness of vaccination to prevent severe COVID-19 requiring admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) has been reported to be approximately 90%.1 However, few data are available regarding duration of vaccination coverage to prevent ICU admission for severe COVID-19 and outcomes in patients who require ICU admission despite prior vaccination. This study aimed to provide a descriptive analysis of ICU admissions for severe COVID-19 after a vaccination campaign in the Veneto region of Italy that started at the end of December 2020 and prioritized health care workers, older individuals, nursing home residents, and patients with severe comorbidities.
