LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 5, 2023) – Researchers at the University of Kentucky are part of a national study in search of the most effective combination of vaccines to help prevent infection with future COVID-19 variants.  

Adults 18 years and older are invited to participate. Up to forty local participants will be enrolled and all will receive a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Participants will be asked to make several visits to the University of Kentucky over six months; parking and compensation provided.
