Background and Objective: COVID-19 is a rapidly spreading acute respiratory syndrome worldwide. COVID-19 vaccination has been widely used as a means to control the disease. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between demographic characteristics and COVID-19 vaccination in patients with COVID-19.
Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was conducted on 1124 patients with a definitive diagnosis of COVID-19 in Minoodasht, Iran, in August 2021. The instruments used in this study included a demographic data questionnaire and a checklist assessing patient characteristics.
Results: The majority of COVID-19 patients were men (51.8%), aged between 35 to 45 years (26%), and married (76.5%). COVID-19 vaccination was administered to 26.6% of the patients. Patients who received vaccination (27.1%) used masks less than unvaccinated patients (72.9%) (P<0.05). Of the patients with COVID-19, 8.2% were hospitalized. The mean duration of hospitalization for vaccinated patients (7.8±6.4 days) was lower than that for unvaccinated patients (8.3±5.9 days); however, this difference was not significant. Age, education, underlying disease, and mask usage were associated with COVID-19 vaccination (P<0.05). With an increase in underlying disease and age, vaccination rates increased, while vaccination rates decreased with the use of masks and lower education.
Conclusion: Attention to demographic factors and certain characteristics of individuals is necessary to improve COVID-19 vaccination rates. Previous COVID-19 vaccination does not decrease the number of hospitalization days in patients with COVID-19.
