[Volunteer Recruitment] Sequential Vaccination Study Against COVID-19 caused by the Omicron variant - It's now inviting volunteers to join!

11/05/2022

HKU-CTC is now inviting volunteers to join a sequential vaccination study against COVID-19 caused by the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant. The purpose of this clinical study is to investigate the safety and immunogenicity profile of three (3) types of investigational inactivated vaccines (BIBP, WIBP or Prototype Vaccine) in populations who have received 2 or 3 doses of COVID-19 vaccines. The study will be conducted in the Vaccination Centre located in Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Centre in Sai Ying Pun (“Vaccination Centre”).

Please note that the service hour of our Centre will be extended to 6:30pm on 8th, 22nd Sep 2022 (Thu). 

In support of the clinical development of COVID-19 vaccines, the Hong Kong Government agrees to issue a ‘Provisional Vaccine Pass’ to each participant successfully enrolled in this study, and it will be valid during the entire study period until the vaccines used in this study (both Omicron and Prototype) are approved by regulatory authorities. The ‘Provisional Vaccine Pass’ would allow its holders to enter or remain on premises subject to the ‘Vaccine Pass’ requirement.
