How the Study Works
People who participate in this study will give blood and saliva samples 3 times, once right before you get the vaccine, 6 weeks after getting the vaccine, and then 12 weeks after getting the vaccine. A trained phlebotomist from ExamOne (a part of Quest labs) will come to collect the samples at a time that people schedule using the ExamOne online portal. They can come to people’s homes or meet them at a Quest center. We will help people make appointments.We will also ask you to fill out 4 surveys using REDCap, an online tool for surveys. We use REDCap to do our research because the platform does not share your data and keeps data secure. Your privacy is very important to us. We will not share or sell your protected health information to anyone.
