Study description

Primary aim: To generate and compare incidence rates of patient-reported adverse reactions of different COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant and lactating women, children and adolescents, immunocompromised, people with history of allergy and people with prior SARS-CoV-2 infection Secondary aim: Within each special cohort of vaccinees to identify potential predictors of the most frequently reported adverse reactions related to different COVID-19 vaccines. The study is a prospective cohort study in special populations (pregnant and lactating women, children and adolescents, immunocompromised, people with history of allergy and people with prior SARS-CoV-2 infection). In different countries, on the national level, data will be prospectively collected, directly from a cohort of vaccine recipients. The common core data from different countries will be pooled, stratified by special cohort and analysed at the European level. The study is set up as a cohort monitoring for a duration of up until 6 months from the first dose vaccination date (except for pregnant women who will be followed up until 1.5 month after the pregnancy end).  Vaccine recipients should be asked to fill in questionnaires at baseline, and 1 and 3 weeks after the first dose (and eventually the second dose), and 3 and 6 months after first dose vaccination. As regards pregnant women a specific “End of Pregnancy” questionnaire will be additionally sent within 1.5 months from the estimated delivery to collect information on outcomes related to pregnancy and new-born. Safety data can be directly reported by vaccine recipients in their local language using the Lareb Intensive Monitoring (LIM) web app or the ResearchOnline web app. Collected data can be stored in dedicated central databases. For each special cohort, adverse reaction incidence rates will be reported overall and stratified and compared across different vaccine brands, gender, age groups, and countries.
