How does Covid-19 vaccination affect people with eczema?

In 2020, the SECURE-AD Patient Survey was launched to help us understand how Covid-19 affected people with eczema. The results will be available shortly as the research team is preparing their first scientific publication. Preliminary results are available on the SECURE-AD website.

In 2021, as we learn to live with Covid-19, the SECURE-AD Patient Survey is adapting. The SECURE-AD team is now asking everyone with atopic eczema to complete the survey, whether they had Covid-19 or not. The survey will provide insights into how the pandemic affected the eczema community and will give us more information about how Covid-19 vaccinations may affect people with eczema.

Please complete the survey here. For updates on the survey and the results, follow the SECURE-AD team on Twitter ( and on Instagram (


This video, which was created in August 2020, explains the purpose of the SECURE-AD Patient Registry as it was then, before the project broadened to involve everyone with atopic eczema.
