AACC COVID-19 Immunity Study

It's Up to Us. Help Answer the Questions of Vaccine Efficacy and Longevity.

Get more information. This study will examine immune responses to SARS-CoV-2 vaccination or prior infection in a large, diverse cohort of volunteers, with the goal of gaining insight into how long the currently available SARS-CoV-2 vaccines will protect against the virus. It takes just 20 minutes to participate. Blood samples for the study will be collected September 28-30 in the B/C connector location of the Clinical Lab Expo Hall, which is near the AACC booth. We invite all registered meeting attendees and exhibitors who are 18 years of age and older to donate blood for the study and to participate in this essential COVID-19 research. Sign-up to participate.

Participation includes completion of an online health questionnaire. Complete the questionnaire by September 28, 7:59 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time to be automatically entered into a drawing to win 1 of 2 iPads being given away.
