Healthcare resource utilisation following COVID-19 according to vaccination status

National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS) and Australian Institute of Health and Welfare


COVID-19 is thought to result in longer-term impacts on health however there is limited evidence on the patterns of healthcare resource utilisation following a COVID-19 diagnosis, and how this might differ by population groups e.g. by vaccination status, comorbidities and demographic factors. This project aims to quantify the impact of COVID-19 on the utilisation of healthcare resources among these populations in Australia.
