At Atrium Health, we’re committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients – and advancing care for all. As we continue to move forward in the fight against COVID-19, we look to our community for help.

COVID-19 is the leading health crisis facing our country and world, and it’s led to unprecedented challenges and suffering for many members of our own community:

  • Millions of people have been infected and everyday life has been disrupted for all of us.
  • Compared to other groups, Black and Hispanic people have more than 4 times the hospitalization rate from the virus.
  • Older adults are at a higher risk for severe illness that requires hospitalization, intensive care or a ventilator to help them breathe.
  • People of all ages and races have suffered from social isolation and disruption to their everyday lives, leading to an increase in mental health conditions.

A vaccine is our best hope for ending the pandemic.

Research scientists and healthcare organizations around the world are currently working to develop safe and effective vaccines to protect against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Some have been authorized for public use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and given to communities. And we, and you, have an opportunity to play a role in those efforts.

We are looking for volunteers who want to learn about – and possibly join – a future COVID-19 vaccine research study. The first step of a vaccine research study is creating a registry. If you’d like to help, please consider signing up.

Join our COVID-19 vaccine research registry.

Frequently asked questions

The purpose of this registry is to help us create a list of people who are interested in learning more about and possibly volunteering for COVID-19 vaccine research trials in the near future.

If we have enough names on our registry, we’ll be able to move forward with a COVID-19 vaccine research study.

If you sign up for this registry, you are NOT signing up for a vaccine research study. You are signing up to learn more about vaccine studies and to possibly be contacted about vaccine studies.

Sign up for our vaccine registry if:

  • You would like to learn about COVID-19 vaccine trials
  • You are possibly interested in volunteering for a COVID-19 vaccine trial in the future

Signing up means:

  • You may get information about vaccine research sent to you
  • The information you provide will be reviewed by the vaccine research team
  • You may be contacted by the vaccine research team about COVID-19 vaccine studies

A vaccine is our best hope for ending this pandemic. For some people who are infected with COVID-19, the virus causes no symptoms or very mild illness. But for others, the symptoms are severe and can even lead to death.

While testing, contact tracing, social distancing and quarantine measures help stop the spread of COVID-19, only a vaccine can protect our bodies against it.

COVID-19 has created a global pandemic that has led to more than 22 million infections. Currently, there are no antiviral medicines or licensed vaccines to treat COVID-19. But we hope to change that – with your help.
