The new NHS Covid-19 vaccine research registry will help large numbers of people sign up to potentially take part in vaccine trials over the coming months, potentially leading to an effective vaccine being identified and made available to the UK public against coronavirus earlier.
The new system will enable researchers to quickly identify and match suitable and willing volunteers to appropriate vaccine trials.
It has been developed as part of the UK Government's Vaccine Taskforce, in partnership with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), NHS Digital, and the Northern Ireland, Scottish and Welsh Governments.
Signing up and giving your permission to be contacted means you may be amongst the first to find out about opportunities to take part in trials and the latest, cutting-edge COVID-19 vaccines. There is no obligation to join in any study, if you are contacted.
