The SIREN study is a study that monitors the impact of detectable anti SARS-COV2 antibody on the incidence of COVID19 in healthcare workers. This national project is an Urgent Public Health study aimed at onsite hospital employees who are ideally patient facing, but also who may have contact with patients as they travel around the hospital.
Healthcare workers have been identified as one of the first groups targeted for vaccination and are therefore an important group to inform on early estimates for vaccine effectiveness.
The SIREN study is reopening to the first 160 volunteers to respond. Volunteers will need to be available for a first visit on one of the following dates, 15, 19, 22 or 26 February, each day will have 40 appointments available and these will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are a member of staff and are interested in joining the study, please read the Participant Information Sheet (PIS) here, and email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information
