Data of Vaccination Profile, Types, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 Re-Infections and Changes in Sports-Related Physical Activity One Month after Infection
The primary aim was to elucidate the intricate relationship between the incidence of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) re-infections and the pre-illness vaccination profile and types concerning alterations in sports-related physical activity (PA) one month after SARS-CoV-2 infection among adults. Data were collected in two consecutive months (February to the end of March 2023), through an internet survey source providing an interactive web-based questionnaire. [The data contains: body mass (kg) and height (cm) values transformed to body mass index (kg·m−2); age (yr), sports-related physical activity changes (MET-min·week−1); sex at birth, ethnicity, region of residence, education level, number of underlying medical conditions that could be related to severe illness with COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 re-infections, and pre-illness vaccination profiles/types classification (nominal and categorical formats).] The dataset sheds light on two noteworthy phenomena: (i) the intricate interplay between post-acute SARS-CoV-2 infection and a decline in sports-related physical activity (-27.6 ± 0.6%, 95%CI: -26.1 – -29.1), influenced by the pre-illness vaccination profile factor; and (ii) the divergence in sports-related physical activity decline between partially vaccinated (-38.2 ± 0.7%, 95%CI: -35.3 – -41.1) and fully vaccinated respondents (-19.2 ± 0.5%, 95%CI: -17.2 – -21.2). These findings offer researchers valuable insights into the complex interplay between these factors, allowing for a deeper understanding of post-infection health consequences. The findings can also guide strategies to promote healthier lifestyles among individuals recovering from the virus.
