Development over time by vaccination status
Hospitalisations by vaccination status, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, 27.01.2021 to 19.09.2022
According to the FOPH/NITAG vaccination recommendation, those who have received all the required doses are deemed ‘fully vaccinated’ (including, for example, those who have had a SARS-CoV-2 infection and subsequently received one dose).
Those who have received one dose of Moderna vaccine (Spikevax®) or Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (Comirnaty®) and have not previously been infected with SARS-CoV-2 are deemed "partially vaccinated".
Those who have not received a COVID-19 vaccination are deemed "not vaccinated".
Those whose vaccination status is not documented, or where the vaccination status is indicated as unknown are listed as "unknown".
We have been collecting data on vaccination status since the end of January 2021. It is based on information that doctors and hospitals deliver to us as part of the reporting requirement. For hospitalisations and deaths in connection with a laboratory-confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, they also transmit the vaccination status in addition to the clinical information.
The information on incidence is per 100,000 inhabitants with the corresponding vaccination status of («fully vaccinated», «fully vaccinated with booster vaccination», «partially vaccinated» and «not vaccinated»). The calculation is based on the total population.
Please note when evaluating the cases by vaccination status that according to the vaccination strategy, older people and those at especially high risk were vaccinated earlier.
Due to the high proportion of reports without indication of the vaccination status, the numbers on cases by vaccination status until the beginning of July 2021 should be interpreted with caution.
