A Detroit-area hospital system is looking for up to 5,000 volunteers for a COVID-19 vaccine study. Henry Ford Health System is working with the National Institutes of Health and Moderna Inc., with assistance from health care providers. (July 28)
ADNAN MUNKARAH: We are very excited that we were chosen at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan, to be 1 of 90 systems across the nation to prove the efficacy of this vaccine or test the efficacy of this vaccine. We want to make sure that we are part of the solution.
MARCUS ZERVOS: The participation is totally voluntary, and there's a website that we'll provide in terms of anybody who might be potentially interested. There's then a screening process that takes place. We're in unprecedented times. COVID is causing millions of infections, hundreds of thousands of deaths, and the vaccine is our best hope of resolving this infection and getting it under control.
