What’s next in the fight against COVID-19

Over a million people have participated in COVID-19 research across the UK since the beginning of the pandemic. Thanks to all those who volunteered and continue to volunteer, we now have effective vaccines and treatments.

Public participation in COVID-19 research is still vital to enable effective treatments to be identified, evidenced and made available to NHS patients.

Even though there are a number of approved COVID-19 vaccines available to people, it is still very important to take part in new COVID-19 vaccine studies.

Different vaccines and dose schedules are needed for different groups of people. That’s why in the UK we’re still running a number of different COVID-19 vaccine studies, which need more volunteers to step forward.

So, what's next?

Wessex Research Hubs are inviting participants to take part in the latest clinical trial of a COVID-19 booster vaccine. 

The NextCOVE Study is enrolling individuals ages 12 to 17 who have received a COVID-19 vaccine and individuals ages 18 and older who have received a COVID-19 vaccine and at least one booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine for an investigational vaccine that may help protect against multiple variants. 

Please visit NextCove to find out more.
