To receive AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, you must receive a minimum score of 75% on the post-test.

  1. You are a member of the healthcare team seeing a 53-year-old female patient with a 2-day history of cough and malaise. She has a positive test for COVID-19 but had received 3 doses of COVID-19 vaccine. What did the previous study by Al-Aly and colleagues find regarding the effects of vaccination on breakthrough infection with SARS-CoV-2?
    Vaccination resulted in no increased risk for mortality vs adults without infection
    Vaccination resulted in no increased risk for long COVID symptoms vs adults without infection
    Vaccination was associated with a lower risk for mortality vs unvaccinated adults with COVID-19
    Vaccination was more effective in preventing long COVID vs mortality in comparisons against unvaccinated adults with COVID-19
  2. What was the main conclusion of the current study by Antonelli and colleagues regarding the risk for long COVID with the Omicron vs Delta variants?
    Omicron was associated with an ≈ 50% decrease in the rate of long COVID
    Omicron was associated with an ≈ 20% increase in the rate of long COVID
    Omicron was associated with a decrease in the rate of long COVID only among adults with ≥ 2 vaccine doses
    Omicron was associated with an increase in the rate of long COVID only among younger adults
