    Results from OddPub: We did not detect open data. We also did not detect open code. Researchers are encouraged to share open data when possible (see Nature blog).


    Results from LimitationRecognizer: We detected the following sentences addressing limitations in the study:
    This study also has some limitations. Despite the high test rate, we cannot rule out undetected reinfections, especially asymptomatic infections among vaccinated individuals, which might inflate the VE. We also cannot rule out that vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals had different health seeking behavior or risk behavior, which could affect VE. Additionally, from April 2021, a corona pass was introduced in Denmark and a valid corona pass gained by previous infection or vaccination, was required for a broad range of social activities, including restaurants, gyms etc.. This may have affected test activity differently for unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals. However, this was common practice during both the Delta and Omicron period and might therefore not play a role when considering VE in these periods. In summary, this study showed that among previously infected individuals who have completed a primary vaccination series, there is a significant VE against SARS-CoV-2 reinfection for the SARS-CoV- 2 variants Alpha, Delta and Omicron; lasting up to 9 months. Even though vaccination seems to protect to a lesser degree against reinfection with the Omicron variant, these findings are of public health relevance as they show that previously infected individuals still benefit from COVID-19 vaccination in all three variant periods.

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
