This protocol aims to streamline the collection of information on the severity of breakthrough COVID-19 infections in outbreaks at long-term care facilities (LTCFs) and facilitate the reporting by EU/EEA Member States to ECDC. This update (protocol version 2.0) has been shortened and streamlined with the objective to obtain timely estimates of vaccine effectiveness in this setting, by SARS-CoV-2 variant and vaccine product.
