OSU Looking For COVID-19 Vaccine Volunteers

Researchers at Ohio State University's Medical Center are seeking applications from 500 adults to participate in a clinical trial of a COVID-19 vaccine. 

Hundreds of hospitals worldwide are conducting tests of a possible vaccine developed by the University of Oxford and a bio-pharmaceutical company. Researchers want people who have a high risk of exposure including teachers, first responders, college students, factory workers, restaurant employees and people age 65 and older.

An application to participate in the trials is availablehere.
