Volunteer to help find the vaccine for Covid-19

This winter the NCA will be part of the national research effort to find a vaccine to protect against Covid-19.

You can be part of the fightback against the virus by volunteering to be contacted by researchers to take part in Covid-19 vaccine research.

There are a number of vaccines being identified and safety-tested at the moment, but only large scale studies can give us the information needed about how effective they are.

The NHS Covid-19 Vaccine Research Registry will allow people to be put in touch with the vaccine studies in the coming months.

Researchers are looking for people from all backgrounds, ages and parts of the UK – including both people with or without existing health conditions – to take part in vaccine studies, to make sure that any vaccines developed will work for everyone. The service is available to anyone aged 18 or over, living in the UK.

There is no obligation to join in any study, if you are contacted. But by taking part, you could help researchers find vaccines to protect us all more quickly – which in turn could help the NHS and save lives. Sign up today here.
