UMass Medical School Part of CDC COVID-19 Study

 by Tom MarinoMarch 3, 2021

UMass Medical School is taking part in an observational research study funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that aims to measure the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines in health care staff.

The study is recruiting participants who test either positive or negative for COVID-19, regardless of their vaccination status, and were symptomatic and tested in the previous 60 days. People are being sought who work in positions such as:

UMass Memorial-affiliated caretakers, medical students in clinical rotations at UMass Memorial Medical Center, residents, and on-site clinical research staff

Participation in this public health project is voluntary and includes a baseline survey about participants, their symptoms, jobs and the basis for seeking COVID-19 testing, and then a follow-up survey with questions about the course of illness and recovery.

Those who meet the criteria can fill out a survey to express interest in participating.
