COVID-19 Vaccines mapping exercise

Aligning data collection protocols as early as possible has proven to facilitate collaborative research.

We have recently performed a mapping exercise of COVID-19 vaccines protocols to support alignment in updating COVID-19 in MS surveys and data collections and to facilitate collaborative research between initiatives.

The mapping exercise is a read up on current initiatives (not-MS specific) and already existing data dictionaries for MS registers/cohorts containing questions towards COVID-19 vaccination to get an overview of collected variables.

The findings are available as a slide deck – most recent version of the slide deck: v2.0 (06 May 2021) – , which is solely descriptive and aims to serve as an initial summary for everyone who wants to start collecting data on COVID-19 vaccination, mainly in people with MS. We aim to provide regular updates when appropriate and we welcome additional information/comments and suggestions.
