Victorian Biobank Begins Recruiting for COVID-19 Vaccine Studies

An initiative to collect blood samples from people before and after their booster vaccination against COVID-19 is calling for people to donate at major hospitals and sites in Melbourne.

Samples donated to the Victorian COVID-19 Vaccinees Collection will help scientists to better understand the immune response and long-term effects of COVID-19 vaccines.

The collection of biological samples, also known as a biobank, has been established by the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity (Doherty Institute) following a $5 million investment from the Victorian Government.

University of Melbourne Professor Sharon Lewin, Director of the Doherty Institute, said people can currently enroll online through the Doherty Institute at vc2.org.au and sites at Austin Health, Monash Health, and Western Health. Most study activities are done by phone and samples are collected through private pathology sites.
