ABSTRACT We studied the immunogenicity of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine in Vietnamese healthcare workers. We collected blood samples before each dose, at 14 days after each dose, and month 1 and 3 after dose 1 from each participant alongside demographics data. We measured neutralizing antibodies using a surrogate virus neutralization assay. The 554 study participants (136 males and 418 females) were aged between 22-71 years (median: 36 years). 104 and 94 out of 144 selected participants were successfully followed up at 14 days after dose 2 and 3 months after dose 1, respectively. Neutralizing antibodies increased after each dose, with the sero-conversion rate reaching 98.1% (102/104) at 14 days after dose 2. At month 3 after dose 1, neutralizing antibody levels decreased, while 94.7% (89/94) of the study participants remained seropositive. Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is immunogenic in Vietnamese healthcare workers. The requirement for a third dose warrants further research.
