Patients Vaccinated for COVID-19 Have Shorter Hospital Stays Than Unvaccinated Patients

Average length of stay for patients hospitalized with COVID-19 shorter for vaccinated patients than unvaccinated patients – Study posted, December 21, 2021.

From epicresearch.org, Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, hospital capacity has been a consistent concern. People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 have a significantly reduced risk of severe illness resulting in hospitalization,1,2 which can help reduce the impact of COVID-19 on hospital capacity. We looked at how being vaccinated against COVID-19 impacts length of stay for COVID-related hospitalizations.

Adults hospitalized with COVID-19 who were fully vaccinated had shorter average hospital stays than those who were not fully vaccinated within the same age group. For example, among patients age 65 and older, the median COVID-19 hospital stay was 1.1 days shorter for those who were fully vaccinated (5.6 days) than for those not fully vaccinated (6.7 days).
