Comparing COVID-19 Boosters for Protection Against the SARS-CoV-2 Virus

(IRB#: IRB_00172738)

This study is to understand better whether and how well COVID-19 booster vaccines protect people from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The information we gain will help us learn more about how to provide people with better protection against this virus. People in this study will complete online surveys and take at-home COVID-19 tests. Two groups are in the study, and people can choose the group they want to participate. One group does not receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and the other does receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Compensation up to $550 is provided for the completion of study activities.
