Development over time by vaccine
Hospitalisations by vaccination status, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, 27.01.2021 to 03.10.2022
The data shown here are based on information supplied to us by doctors and hospitals as part of the reporting obligation. They do not allow a formal comparison of the efficacy of vaccines. Interpretation of the data is limited by many factors, including the integration period of the respective vaccines in the vaccination strategy, vaccination coverage in the various specific target groups, and the predominance of a virus variant at a given time.
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.
