COVID-19 Active Research Experience

Share your experiences. Help find answers.


There’s still so much we don’t know about COVID-19, like why some of us have symptoms that continue for months and others don’t, or the side effects of the vaccine. From the comfort of your home, you can help answer these important questions.

Have you, or someone you know, been exposed to the COVID-19 virus or at a high risk of infection? Have you received a vaccine? Whether you have been tested or not, sharing your experience will contribute to research and lead to answers.
