CORSIP is a study of paramedics in British Columbia and Ontario. It aims to recruit 5000 paramedics who will complete surveys and collect blood samples three times over one year.

  • Your blood samples will help us identify how many paramedics have developed antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 and how long these antibodies last. These antibodies may be from infection or immunization. Subsequent samples will show if these antibodies are still present. You are eligible whether or not you have been vaccinated, however if you have not been vaccinated please provide your first blood sample prior to vaccination. We will share your personal lab results with you through this study portal!
  • Your survey responses will help us assess the occupational risk of working as a paramedic during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will further investigate workplace factors that increase or decrease paramedics' risk of developing COVID-19.

This project is funded by the COVID-19 Immunity Task Force, as part of a national effort to by the Government of Canada to track spread of the virus in priority populations in Canada.
