A lot is still unknown about the impact of COVID-19 and vaccinations, however, the CEHR have been working with The University of Oxford to investigate different impacts. Studying national data that are routinely collected about people’s health can help us to identify rare disease and potential risks after COVID-19 infection or vaccination that don’t show up in smaller clinical trials. This in turn will help doctors to recognise any rare complications.
We wanted to look at the risks of being admitted to hospital or dying of nervous system conditions to see whether they might be associated with either COVID-19 infection or vaccination. An infographic has been developed for a wide range of audiences to understand the results.
