We are still welcoming new participants, even if you have been vaccinated!
There is a new location in the User Portal to record your vaccine and COVID-19 infection status. Please update these questions now and if you get vaccinated or become infected with COVID-19:
Timing of Blood Samples
Vaccinated participants: It is important for every vaccinated participant to provide a blood sample 6 months after the first vaccine dose. If you have not provided a 1st sample yet and this date is very close, then wait until this date (otherwise provide your 1st sample now, and the 2nd at the 6-month point). If you have already provided a sample, please provide your 2nd sample 6 months after the first vaccine dose.
Unvaccinated participants: If you have not yet provided a sample please do so now. The 2nd sample should be provided 6 months after the 1st sample. If you get vaccinated at any time, consider yourself a “vaccinated participant”.
Timing of Questionnaires
Please fill out a questionnaire at the same time that you provide a blood sample. For example, when you provide your 2nd blood sample you should fill out the 2nd questionnaire.
Dried blood spot collection kits are still available for home collection!
Please contact your provincial study coordinator if you need a kit.
Have you been infected with COVID-19 after being vaccinated?
If so, we are very interested in hearing from you. If you have a confirmed COVID-19 infection after vaccination please email your provincial study coordinator.
