PITTSBURGH – Researchers in Pennsylvania are looking for participants for COVID-19 vaccine trials.

Recruitment is set to begin immediately for a vaccine developed by Moderna Inc.







“In total we expect over 750 individuals over the age of 18 to participate,” explained Dr. Sharon Riddler with University of Pittsburgh Division of Infectious Diseases. “These participants will be people who are living in the community and who are not severely immuno-compromised.”

Doctor Riddler says she hopes groups who have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19, like older people, blacks, and latinos take part in the trial.
