COVERED: Fall Booster Recruitment Push
People who are currently pregnant or lactating, or who have been pregnant or lactating during the COVID-19 pandemic are invited to participate in the COVERED vaccine study. Particularly, we are looking for individuals who have received a fall 2022 COVID-19 booster vaccination to participate. We will be collecting information on your opinions and what you experienced when receiving a booster vaccine while pregnant and/or lactating. You are eligible for COVERED if you gave birth after March 1, 2020 or are currently pregnant. If you would like to enroll, please complete an e-consent at covered.med.ubc.ca and more study details will be sent to you shortly thereafter. Thank you for your interest and participation.
Who we are
The COVERED registry was designed as a Pan-Canadian project with collaborators in every province and territory. The project is led by Dr. Deborah Money and her Reproductive Infectious Diseases (RID) research team at the BC Women’s Hospital in Vancouver, BC. Key physicians and researchers across Canada have worked together to create this registry to learn about your experience when receiving a COVID-19 vaccination while pregnant or lactating. Our aim is to report our data to inform safe vaccine recommendations for those that are pregnant and lactating.
Intro to COVERED
We are seeking individuals that have been pregnant or were lactating during the COVID-19 pandemic to take part in the COVID-19 Vaccine Registry for Pregnant and Lactating Individuals (COVERED). Participants do not have to have already received a COVID-19 vaccine, nor do they need to intend to receive the vaccine. Participants will answer questions about their attitudes towards the COVID-19 vaccine, their health experiences and their pregnancy outcomes. As we move into the fall/winter of 2022 we are hoping to learn about your experience if you received a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine and/or an influenza vaccine.
Purpose of Study
This is a national registry of unvaccinated and vaccinated pregnant and lactating individuals. We are conducting this research to improve our understanding of vaccine safety and how well the vaccines protect against COVID-19.
