In the UK, vaccines save thousands of lives every year. They are the most effective way to prevent infectious diseases. Vaccines have the potential to help us beat coronavirus (COVID-19).
There are different types of vaccines, and we don’t know which one will work best to protect people from catching COVID-19. It might be that different vaccines are needed for different groups of people so the National Institute for Health Research is planning to run a few different vaccine studies.
You can sign up to give permission for researchers to contact you about taking part in COVID-19 vaccine studies. By collecting details about people who are interested in taking part in vaccine studies, the service will help cut down the time it takes to find volunteers for vaccine studies. This will help us to carry out studies and find a vaccine faster.
You can sign up if you are 18 or over, and live in the UK.
You are not signing up to take part in a specific health study when you use this service. You are letting researchers know you’re happy for them to contact you if they think you might be suitable to take part in their studies.
