Immunocompromised persons are at increased risk for severe COVID-19–related outcomes, including intensive care unit (ICU) admission and death (1). Data on adults aged ≥18 years hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 from 10 U.S. states in the COVID-19–Associated Hospitalization Surveillance Network (COVID-NET) were analyzed to assess associations between immunocompromise and ICU admission and in-hospital death during March 1, 2020–February 28, 2022. Associations of COVID-19 vaccination status with ICU admission and in-hospital death were also examined during March 1, 2021–February 28, 2022. During March 1, 2020–February 28, 2022, among a sample of 22,345 adults hospitalized for COVID-19, 12.2% were immunocompromised. Among unvaccinated patients, those with immunocompromise had higher odds of ICU admission (adjusted odds ratio [aOR] = 1.26; 95% CI = 1.08–1.49) and in-hospital death (aOR = 1.34; 95% CI = 1.05–1.70) than did nonimmunocompromised patients. Among vaccinated patients,* those with immunocompromise had higher odds of ICU admission (aOR = 1.40; 95% CI = 1.01–1.92) and in-hospital death (aOR = 1.87; 95% CI = 1.28–2.75) than did nonimmunocompromised patients. During March 1, 2021–February 28, 2022, among nonimmunocompromised patients, patients who were vaccinated had lower odds of death (aOR = 0.58; 95% CI = 0.39–0.86) than did unvaccinated patients; among immunocompromised patients, odds of death between vaccinated and unvaccinated patients did not differ. Immunocompromised persons need additional protection from COVID-19 and using multiple known COVID-19 prevention strategies,† including nonpharmaceutical interventions, up-to-date vaccination of immunocompromised persons and their close contacts,§ early testing, and COVID-19 prophylactic (Evusheld) and early antiviral treatment,¶ can help prevent hospitalization and subsequent severe COVID-19 outcomes among immunocompromised persons.
COVID-NET is a CDC-funded collaboration for population-based surveillance of laboratory-confirmed COVID-19–associated hospitalization in 99 U.S. counties in 14 states. A COVID-NET case is defined as a positive real-time reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction or rapid antigen test result for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) within 14 days before or during hospitalization in a person who lived in the surveillance catchment area. Medical chart abstraction and representative sampling methods have been described previously (2). Data collected on sampled adults hospitalized during March 1, 2020–February 28, 2022, across 10 participating states** were examined. Patients whose hospitalization was not likely related to COVID-19†† and those without a completed chart review were excluded. Immunocompromised patients were defined as those having one or more predefined immunocompromising conditions.§§ COVID-19 vaccination definitions for immunocompromised persons changed during the study period¶¶; in this analysis, a vaccinated patient was defined as one who had received both doses of a 2-dose COVID-19 vaccination series or 1 dose of a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine with or without additional or booster doses ≥14 days before their positive SARS-CoV-2 test result, per state immunization information system records. Vaccinated patients with additional or booster doses were not analyzed separately. Patients were considered unvaccinated if no COVID-19 vaccination was recorded before the positive test result; patients who were documented to have received only the first dose of a 2-dose series or their last vaccination series dose <14 days before receiving a positive SARS-CoV-2 test result were excluded.
Demographic and clinical characteristics of hospitalized patients were assessed; Pearson’s chi-square tests were used to compare differences between immunocompromised and nonimmunocompromised patients. Bivariate and multivariable logistic regression analyses were used to assess associations between immunocompromise and both ICU admission and in-hospital death among vaccinated and unvaccinated patients in separate models. Associations between each individual immunocompromising condition and death were assessed using multivariable analyses, adjusting only for age and sex to improve model convergence. Bivariate and multivariable analyses were used to assess the association between vaccination status and both ICU admission and in-hospital death among immunocompromised and nonimmunocompromised patients in separate models, using data beginning March 1, 2021, when immunocompromised patients first reported receiving vaccine doses, through February 28, 2022. Multivariable analyses were adjusted for age, sex, site (entered as a fixed effect), SARS-CoV-2 variant–predominant period,*** and other factors with documented or potential association and a p-value <0.10 in bivariate analyses. Statistical analyses used SAS (version 9.4; SAS Institute) survey procedures to account for sampling weights, with statistical significance set at alpha = 0.05. This activity was reviewed by CDC and conducted consistent with applicable federal law and CDC policy.†††
During March 1, 2020–February 28, 2022, a representative sample of 24,625 (11.0%, unweighted) of 223,069 COVID-NET cases had complete chart review, including 22,345§§§ (90.7%, unweighted) that met inclusion criteria. Among the 22,345 patients included, 12.2% were immunocompromised, including 11.1%, 10.9%, and 17.3% of patients hospitalized during the pre-Delta, Delta, and Omicron variant–predominant periods, respectively. Overall, immunocompromised patients were more likely to be older and to be non-Hispanic White (Table 1). Compared with nonimmunocompromised patients, those with immunocompromise had a statistically significantly higher prevalence of all underlying medical conditions except diabetes and neurologic disease.
Among unvaccinated patients, those who were immunocompromised had higher odds of ICU admission (aOR = 1.26) and death (aOR = 1.34) than did nonimmunocompromised patients¶¶¶ (Table 2). Similarly, among vaccinated patients, those who were immunocompromised also had higher odds of ICU admission (aOR = 1.40) and in-hospital death (aOR = 1.87) compared with nonimmunocompromised patients.**** Among patients with a specific immunocompromising condition compared with patients without that condition (irrespective of immunocompromise status), the odds of in-hospital death were higher for those with AIDS or low CD4+ count (aOR = 2.03), immunosuppressive therapy use (aOR = 1.65), multiple myeloma (aOR = 5.28), or solid organ transplant (aOR = 2.12) and lower for patients with immunoglobulin deficiency (aOR = 0.16) (Supplementary Table 1, https://stacks.cdc.gov/view/cdc/118606).
Among immunocompromised patients, those who were vaccinated did not have statistically significantly different odds of ICU admission or in-hospital death†††† compared with unvaccinated patients (Table 3). Among nonimmunocompromised patients, those who were vaccinated had lower odds of death (aOR = 0.58) than did unvaccinated patients.§§§§
During the pre-Delta and Delta variant–predominant periods, immunocompromised patients generally had higher odds of death, irrespective of vaccination status compared with nonimmunocompromised patients, and nonimmunocompromised patients who were vaccinated had lower odds of death compared with unvaccinated patients (Supplementary Table 2, https://stacks.cdc.gov/view/cdc/118607). However, in the Omicron variant–predominant period, odds of death, irrespective of immunocompromise or vaccination status, were not statistically significantly different.
Once hospitalized, immunocompromised patients with COVID-19 had increased odds of ICU admission or in-hospital death, irrespective of vaccination status, compared with nonimmunocompromised patients, after adjusting for differences in demographic and clinical characteristics. The generally consistent association of individual immunocompromising conditions with increased odds of death suggests that immunocompromise itself was likely associated with severe outcomes.
COVID-19 vaccination among immunocompromised persons is highly protective against COVID-19–associated hospitalization (3), leading to fewer hospitalized patients who are then admitted to the ICU or die in-hospital. Once patients were hospitalized, however, vaccination status was not associated with ICU admission or death among immunocompromised patients in these analyses; patients with more medical conditions likely had closer medical follow-up and were strongly advised to be vaccinated, biasing vaccinated patients to be those at higher risk for severe outcomes, potentially contributing to the absence of observed differences. In addition, vaccine effectiveness against severe outcomes in immunocompromised persons is known to be lower than that in nonimmunocompromised persons (3,4). In comparison, nonimmunocompromised hospitalized patients who were vaccinated had reduced odds of death compared with those who were unvaccinated, consistent with the known protective effect of vaccination against severe outcomes in persons who can mount a robust immune response after vaccination. During the Omicron variant–predominant period, however, the effects of immunocompromise and vaccination on odds of death were attenuated in all patients, potentially due to the lower proportion of severe outcomes during hospitalization associated with this variant,¶¶¶¶ as well as the increased prevalence of previous infection-conferred immunity resulting in a decreased risk for infection across all groups and waning of vaccine-derived protection among those who received vaccine doses earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of these attenuated effects and the inability to further stratify by receipt of additional or booster doses because stratification generated unstable estimates (relative SE >30) in the analysis, the effect of additional or booster doses on death among immunocompromised patients was not able to be assessed.
Data from population-based, active surveillance suggest that immunocompromised adults are overrepresented among patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in the United States, accounting for 12.2% of adult hospitalizations in COVID-NET compared with an estimated 2.7% of the U.S. adult population (5). However, immunocompromised patients in COVID-NET shared similar demographic characteristics with the underlying U.S. noninstitutionalized immunocompromised population. The age ranges with the highest percentages of immunocompromised patients were similar (COVID-NET: 50–74 years; U.S. population: 50–69 years) (5). The older age distribution among immunocompromised patients likely contributed to their higher prevalences of underlying conditions known to be associated with poor COVID-19 outcomes, including chronic lung disease, renal disease, and obesity, which would increase the likelihood of severe COVID-19, hospitalization, and inclusion in this analysis (6).
The findings in this report are subject to at least four limitations. First, the analyses did not control for time since vaccination; earlier eligibility for and receipt of vaccines by immunocompromised patients might have resulted in earlier waning of protection, complicating identification of associations between vaccination and severe outcomes. Second, whereas the active, population-based nature of COVID-NET data minimizes the risk for capturing a nonrepresentative sample of hospitalized patients, clinicians might have admitted immunocompromised patients who were less ill than were nonimmunocompromised patients, leading to smaller observed differences in severe outcomes. Third, the number of immunocompromised persons within COVID-NET catchment areas is unknown; therefore, population-based rates of severe outcomes by immunocompromise and vaccination status not conditioned on hospitalization could not be calculated. Finally, changing recommendations and absence of data on prehospitalization prophylactic or treatment medications for COVID-19 limited the ability to account for treatments; severe outcomes might have been mitigated in patients who received these medications.
Given the increased odds of severe COVID-19 outcomes among immunocompromised hospitalized patients, multilayered prevention strategies for immunocompromised persons are critical to preventing hospitalization for COVID-19 and subsequent severe outcomes, especially when community levels indicate increased transmission and disease severity (7,8).***** These strategies include implementing nonpharmaceutical interventions; ensuring that immunocompromised persons and their close contacts are up to date with COVID-19 vaccination; urging immunocompromised persons to use effective preexposure prophylactic therapeutics, such as Evusheld; early testing, such as at-home tests; and early disease treatments, such as antiviral medications. Improved access to and use of these measures with considerations for socioeconomically disadvantaged and historically underserved racial and ethnic groups will help ensure health equity (9,10).†††††
