Northwick Park is looking for Covid booster jab trial volunteers

Northwick Park Hospital is looking for volunteers to take part in its third COVID-19 trial since the start of the pandemic.

The study will test a new booster vaccine ensuring it is safe and provides an effective immune response.

The hospital is looking for volunteers who have had two doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca or the Pfizer vaccine with the second dose at least 4 months ago.

Volunteers will receive one booster shot followed by six follow-up visits over course of a year when blood will be taken to test the vaccination’s longevity. Participants must be over 18.

Dr Ashley Whittington, an infectious diseases consultant, said: “Volunteers have made an invaluable contribution to the fight against Covid-19 and we are keen to hear from anyone who can spare the time to take part in the trial.”
