San Diego Blood Bank is partnering with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, part of the federal Department of Health and Human Services, on a new research study involving plasma from donors who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. The intent of the study is to test antibodies raised by COVID-19 vaccines found in the plasma of participants against new variants of the COVID-19 virus as they emerge. We need participants.

Potential participants must meet the following criteria: age 18 years or older; never diagnosed with COVID-19; received either a second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines in the last 4-6 weeks, or a first and only dose of the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine in the last 8-10 weeks; must currently be eligible to donate plasma.

If you or anyone you know of might be interested, please fill out the form at and someone will be in touch with you shortly.

Thank you for your time and consideration regarding this important study.
