I signed up for a vaccine trial last night. There was an advertisement on Facebook. The trial I signed up for is phase 3 of Azd1222. I havd first appointment next week in Bloomington, MN. This is vaccine from Oxford. They are accepting people of all ages and with well-controlled chronic conditions.

Thanks for posting this @merpreb

This most recent Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast with Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group, gives an overview of vaccines. He explains how vaccines work.

There's a questionnaire people fill out on line first. Then you know right away if you're eligible. I don't know why this happened to me but I was directed to make an appointment right away. Then I got sent a link to my email to something called study hub. I had to activate it in 7 days. So I did and created a password. So people can start the process and drop out if they don't feel comfortable.

@merpreb, Thank you for posting this request for participation in clinical trial studies. I have read the information and applaud Dr. Fauci for all he does, this included, and to you for making this request available to us in Connect. I will not be participating because of several serious health immune issues that prevent my wanting to be in any unnecessary contact with others. Hoping that many will participate and will share this with friends less compromised health wise. Thanks again for all you and our other mentors do to keep us well informed!

My concern is my lung disease – bronchiectasis- and how that may be affected by taking the vaccine

@migizii– Good morning. This is a very legitimate concern and I have it too with lung cancer. I'm sure that this concern will be recognized. And as @ihatediabetes said, you don't have to do anything that that you are uncomfortable with and can drop out at any time.

After reading many responses, I decided to fill out the survey but have not heard any response as yet. I’m guessing it’s because I live in a rural area far away from any urban areas. I may not even get a chance to be denied or consider dropping out……..
