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

Mental Health Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic StudyThe purpose of this study is to learn about how stressors related to the COVID-19 virus affect mental health over time. We hope to better understand the experiences of participants during this difficult time. Participation involves completing online questionnaires every two weeks, for 6 months. The questionnaires take about 20 minutes to complete. You must be at least 18 years old to participate.NCT04339790To find out if you qualify, email or call 1-240-665-0697 [TTY: 1-866-411-1010].National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)
NCI COVID-19 in Cancer Patients Study (NCCAPS): A Longitudinal Natural History StudyThis study collects blood samples, medical information, and medical images from patients who are being treated for cancer and have a positive test for SARS CoV-2, the new coronavirus that causes the disease called COVID-19. Collecting blood samples, medical information, and medical images may help researchers determine how COVID-19 affects the outcomes of patients undergoing cancer treatment and how having cancer affects COVID-19.NCT04387656
