PARTICIPATE in a COVID-19 VACCINE STUDY

Since the start of the pandemic, researchers at USF Health and Tampa General Hospital have been working to find new treatments in the fight against COVID-19. This dedicated team and the TGH-USF Health Office of Clinical Research are now part of the global search for a COVID-19 vaccine.  Please consider volunteering to participate in one of our randomized clinical trials that will help determine the effectiveness of vaccines developed as a part of “Operation Warp Speed.”

Why it is important

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019, there have been over 34 million cases, and over a million deaths worldwide. So far, there is no vaccine that has been shown to be effective against COVID-19. 

Locations

There will be multiple locations. If you decide to participate, you can discuss the location that works best for you with a member of the study team. 

Who may be eligible?

  • People with no current illness (cough, fever, or other signs of illness)
  • Any gender
  • Ages 18 and older

Study activities that may be required 

  • A combination of in-person clinic visits and remote visits (i.e., telephone or telehealth)
  • Personal health tracking

Compensation may be offered for your time and effort

  • If you are eligible, a member of the study team will discuss the details with you.

During the study, the study staff may

  • Ask you questions about your health
  • Draw your blood
  • Give you a shot (either vaccine or placebo – a placebo looks like the vaccine but does not contain active ingredients)
  • Collect samples to test for COVID-19

If you become sick during the study
