UCL healthcare workers invited to take part in Covid-19 vaccine trial

UCL staff who have a healthcare role - for example as a member of staff at one of our partner hospitals - are invited to take part in a UCLH trial of the Covid-19 vaccine developed at the University of Oxford.

The study aims to find a safe vaccine that can be used to create immune responses against the virus and thus prevent the disease.

Recruitment is aimed at all healthcare staff - clinical and non-clinical - except those whose work is office-based. Priority will be given to staff who have continued to travel into work during the lockdown.

Given the rapid pace of the trial, volunteers need to register interest urgently - you can find out more and apply on the trial website.

Places are limited - the study will recruit a maximum of 500 healthcare workers in total - and recruitment is on a first come first served basis.

UCLH is recruiting participants in 2 age groups: 18 to 55, and 56 and over. The trial website run by Oxford currently only mentions the 18 to 55 group - but you can also apply if you are 56 or over.

On the UCLH trial page, volunteers should click on the ’Pre-Screening Questionnaire’ button and complete the online form.
