Data Collection and Reporting

This article details a year-long, longitudinal cohort study of individuals with schizophrenia to examine COVID-19 hospitalization, mortality, vaccination, and postvaccination infection rates. Results show that individuals with schizophrenia are at an increased risk of hospitalization and mortality and have lower rates of vaccination than the general population. Medical comorbidities also play a significant role in worsening outcomes and mortality for this sub-population.
