Northwestern launches COVID-19 registry for vaccine trials

Northwestern Medicine has launched a COVID Prevention Trials Registry for people who are interested in participating in COVID-19 clinical trials to prevent infection from the virus…

The at-risk individuals being sought are 18 years and older and working in a job that puts them at higher risk of exposure to the virus. That includes health care workers, people who work in a grocery store or retail outlet, public transportation employees, factory or plant workers, and individuals who live or work in congregated living facilities like nursing homes. The registry also needs members of the community who are disproportionately affected by COVID-19 such as older persons, racial/ethnic groups like African Americans, Latinx and Native Americans and people with certain underlying health conditions.
