A new website has launched to help people volunteer to take the Covid-19 vaccine before it is widely available.
The site called CoronavirusPreventionNetwork.org went live Wednesday and it provides information on all clinical trials in the US.
Researchers are looking to recruit tens of thousands of volunteers.
Anyone interested in joining a vaccine clinical study can fill out a quick questionnaire.
After registering, those who qualify will be sent the study site closet to them.
People who don’t get out much, and who wear a mask when they do leave home would not necessarily make the best study subjects.
Scientists want to test the effectiveness of the vaccine, which is hard to judge if the participant hasn’t been exposed to Covid-19.
The website will handle registration for the four large vaccine studies expected to start the summer and fall, and any others that follow.
