The Department of Veterans Affairs is seeking volunteers to take part in clinical trials of vaccines and treatments for COVID-19. Participants do not have to be veterans, but must be at least 18 years old.
“Volunteering for our trials is a way people can help our country more quickly find vaccines and treatments to end the pandemic and get life back to normal,” VA Secretary Robert Wilkie said.

VA is studying vaccines developed by Moderna, AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Janssen. Drugs and medications slated for the VA trials include remdesivir, monoclonal antibodies, and Tocilizumab.
