UK researchers are working to answer important questions about how COVID is spreading- especially as variants emerge-so we can all get back to the things we love, safely.
We need the help of people who want to get vaccinated and people who don't want it.
If you're 18 to 29 years old and not vaccinated, you may be eligible to participate!
Participants are compensated.

Does the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine prevent infection and spreading the virus to others?
We already know that the vaccine can prevent serious COVID-19 disease, but we still have more to learn about how the vaccine works! Now, we want to know if the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine:
If you decide to join the study, you:
No. We do expect that some people will be exposed to the virus in their everyday lives, and may become sick, but we are not intentionally infecting study participants. The Moderna vaccine does not include live, weakened or whole virus.
Yes, people who join the study get compensated. The details about compensation will be explained in the informed consent process at clinic sites.
Because testing the vaccine's effectiveness to reduce and/or prevent transmission requires measuring spread of the virus to others. About 25,500 individuals identified as "close contacts" will also be invited to take part in the study. Close contacts who agree to participate will be asked to answer weekly questionnaires. They may also be asked to provide two blood samples and take daily swabs of their nose for two weeks.
