We are still welcoming new participants, even if you have been vaccinated!
All participants, please take a few minutes to log in to the study portal to update your vaccine and infection status:
COVID19 vaccination status and COVID-19 infection status are found on the main questionnaire, Questions 19, 34 – 37.
Once updated please scroll to the bottom of the page to “submit” your changes.
Thank you for helping us to ensure that your study information is up to date!
Alberta Precision Labs is now available for study blood collection.
Please download your lab requisition from the study portal and complete your first blood collection as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Edmonton participants: DynaLife will be coming soon!
Only 50% of our study participants have gone for their first blood collection
We understand if you’ve been unable to make it to the lab and would really like to help.
Please contact your provincial study coordinator for further assistance or let us know if you are unable to give a sample.
Timing of 2nd blood sample
If you are vaccinated, please provide your 2nd blood sample 6 months after the date of your first vaccine dose
(if you have not provided a 1st sample yet and this date is very close, then feel free to skip the 1st sample).
If you were not vaccinated, provide your 2nd sample 6 months after the 1st sample.
New result reporting for all participants
We are retesting all samples to provide information to vaccinated participants of whether there is evidence of “N” antibodies, indicating a previous COVID-19 infection.
These results will typically follow the initial result by 1-2 months.
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.
