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 https://meet.sandiegobloodbank.org/vaccine-research and someone will be in touch with you shortly.
Thank you for your time and consideration regarding this important study.
