In order to study the efficacy of the vaccine you need both areas with a high presence of the virus and people who are more likely to be in contact with those infected. The high risk people are very unlikely to meet the 2nd condition and depending how careful they are (probably the most careful of all) they may skew the results. My concern is that, according to the OP, they are specifically looking for high risk individuals so I am wondering what percentage of the subjects are indeed high risk. I am curious, if the OP can share of course, what kind of precautions she has taken so far to avoid being infected.
I am doing the sorts of things recommended by the CDC: washing hands, using hand sanitizer, wearing a mask, etc. I will also state that Palm Beach County has mandated masks in all public buildings. However, I am out and about in my community regularly. My husband is permanently disabled and does not drive so I am the designated shopper for my family. I make all the runs to the grocery store, gas, restaurant pick ups, etc. I am going to the beach regularly, etc. I have tried to be careful without being a hermit crab. We have also taken several road trips since the pandemic began to tourist areas within Florida: we spent one week at Sanibel Island and a second week at Marco Island/Naples. I would not consider myself to be “quarantining” at home. As a Floridian, we are welcome in few states at this point so our trips have all been in-state.

The current location of 89 trial sites matches up with areas of the country where the virus is now spreading rapidly. That’s important because the more people who volunteer in areas where the virus is actively circulating, the more likely those participants will be to get exposed to the virus. That would help the researchers more quickly determine whether people who were vaccinated with the experimental shot had better protection in fighting infection than those receiving placebo. My understanding is that after two doses, scientists will closely track which group experiences more infections as they go about their daily routines, especially in areas where the virus still is spreading unchecked.

While I would prefer to be in the test group, rather than the control group, it is randomized and there is no way to know which shot I will have been given. My understanding is that the study will be “unblinded” at the end and you will know if you received the real vaccine or the placebo. But that is a long ways off . . .

Kudos to you for volunteering.

It is interesting that the study will go on for two years when the anticipation is that a vaccine will be approved and become available long before then.

All right!!

They really need people willing to roll up their sleeves for science right now.

They are monitoring antibody levels over time. That will let them know how long the protections of this vaccination may last and how frequently it may need to be readministered.

If you can locate your closest research facility, you can look at their website and enroll there too. I completed the form at Palm Beach Research online and they called me the next day. I see you are in San Jose. I will see if I can find the list of the 89 facilities and their locations and post.

Adults who are interested in joining this study can visit www.coronaviruspreventionnetwork.org(link is external) or visit ClinicalTrials.gov and search identifier NCT04470427 to find a study center to volunteer. ClinicalTrials.gov includes a complete listing of study locations.

If you click directly on the link to NCT04470427 above, it will take you to the page that has all 89 locations. You have to click to expand and reveal the list. I have cut and pasted it below. The formatting isn’t great but at least the states are in alpha order. And some of the facilities that are listed as “Not Recruiting Now,” show this incorrectly. It most be old info. I am part of Palm Beach Research Center Which shows as not currently recruiting but they definitely are.

Here is my 2 cent comment, nothing you are probably not aware of already: no vaccine is 100% effective, especially with your condition it may be just 50% effective if that much; also you do not know if you are in the control group or if you will receive the actual vaccine so your chances are also 50-50. In all you are probably reducing your odds of infection by 25% only so do not let the guard down at all, ignore completely that you may have received the shot and you will be fine. Good luck and thanks again for participating to the study!
Thank you for caring about me! No, I plan to stay safe. No risky behavior here! I realize it is a coin toss as to whether I actually receive the vaccine. Tuggers are the best!

Thank you! You rock!!! Let me know if you want to go on a vacation somewhere -- I'm stacked with extra weeks from cancelled 2020 trips....would love to put one to good use! Thanks again for the note and I applaud your volunteering!

Amy,

I sent you a pm regarding your specific immunodeficiency. Most people don't understand there are hundreds of immunodeficiency diagnosis and treatments.

Greg, that is incredibly kind of you to offer and this has been one of the nicest responses I have received. I really had to chuckle when you said you are stacked with weeks! Lol. If you have anything open up in Florida like the Florida Keys, Marco Island or Sanibel Island I would love it. There are not many places a Floridian can go right now. We are not welcome in many states. Lol. Other than Florida, we have a trip planned to Hawaii in November and would consider time there but because of the 14 day quarantine I am not sure it’s a viable option.

Tuggers are just terrific. We are doing our part to make a difference!

Talk is cheap, however you have given us all the information need to participate in a study IMHO.
Thanks you

At stage 3, they either give you the vaccine or a placebo. I don't think it is a challenge trial where they purposely expose you to the virus, but they want you to go about your normal activities. I don't think they would want someone to be hold up in their home under quarantine during the trial since this would impact their results. They will probably survey participants on a regular basis as to their activities during the trial to see who is and who isn't partaking in activities that would possibly expose them to the virus and take that in to consideration for their results.
Here is my 2 cent comment, nothing you are probably not aware of already: no vaccine is 100% effective, especially with your condition it may be just 50% effective if that much; also you do not know if you are in the control group or if you will receive the actual vaccine so your chances are also 50-50. In all you are probably reducing your odds of infection by 25% only so do not let the guard down at all, ignore completely that you may have received the shot and you will be fine. Good luck and thanks again for participating to the study!
I doubt they could ethically ask anyone to do anything differently than they were doing, to jeopardize their lives or otherwise.

As long as the total sample size is large enough, and randomized between control and test groups, there should not be any bias toward the "stay at home" vs. the "party" types. Each group should be as homeogenic as possible, making the results statistically relevant.

Of course, no study is perfect.

Thank you Amy for your willingness to participate in this study. It's so important that we get this virus under control. We will be following your experience here. Best wishes to you!

I noticed a testing center close to me, so I filled out the survey for participation. I don't know if I'll meet the criteria for the study. I was inspired by your attitude! Thanks for sharing all the contact info on the study.

You can also find the website for your closest testing site and fill out the form there.They will get to you quicker that way than just going through the COVID Prevention Network site.

Thanks for stepping up to the plate! Our Tuggers are making a difference.
