Vaccine Trials - CoVPN Volunteer Screening RegistryThe purpose of this screening registry is to create a list of potential volunteers who want to take part in current or future COVID-19 prevention clinical trials. You must be 18 years or older to participate. Participation involves completing a short online survey that includes some personal questions. Your participation is voluntary. This survey typically takes about 10 minutes to complete. Varieswww.coronaviruspreventionnetwork.orgNIAID
Vaccine Trial - ModernaTx The mRNA-1273 vaccine is being developed to prevent COVID-19, the disease resulting from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) infection. The study is designed to primarily evaluate the efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity of mRNA-1273 to prevent COVID-19 for up to 2 years after the second dose of mRNA-1273.NCT04470427Moderna Clinical Trials
Vaccine Trial - PfizerThis study involves comparing an investigational vaccine against a placebo (inactive substance) to see if the investigational vaccine can prevent COVID-19. The vaccine is given by injection.NCT04368728Pfizer Call Center
