Vaccine Effectiveness Study

Monitoring the vaccine’s effectiveness and impact is crucial to know the immediate and long-term effects, as many questions remain unanswered in clinical trials.

Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência has been developing several monitoring studies in different age groups of the population and of different vaccines available in the country, in partnership with hospitals, health agencies and municipalities. INFO-VAC intends to study the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine effectiveness.

The set of data collected will be shared with the National Health Institute Dr. Ricardo Jorge, which will speed up, with European Agencies (ECDC), the extended national monitoring which will allow to provide information for possible updates of the global policy recommendations.
