How can I volunteer for clinical studies related to COVID-19?

This article was updated on May, 27, 2024

Clinical studies related to COVID-19 need volunteers. Even as many vaccines have already been rolled out and administered, trials for new and updated vaccines and therapies are still ongoing. If you are interested in volunteering to help in this effort, there are participating research sites where you can sign up:

It is important to do your own research on which clinical trials related to COVID-19 are ongoing and what are the requirements you need to fulfill in order to participate in an impactful way.

When you reach out to one of the participating research sites, they should inform you what kind of research they are conducting. In turn, you may be asked for your personal information which will help them determine whether the studies that are open are a good fit for you.

In order to make an informed decision on whether you should participate in a clinical study, it is important to have detailed discussions about the nature of the study with the research staff.

Should you have or need a legally authorized representative, they will be asked to accompany you or help you better understand the legal aspects of your participation.
