Due for a booster – QoVAX SET Pilot Booster Study

The QoVAX SET Pilot Booster Study seeks to better understand what factors will affect your immune response to the COVID-19 vaccine course, including the booster shot. We will combine your results, with those from other participants, to understand what these factors may be on a population-wide level.

If you take part in this study, it will not affect the healthcare you receive.

There is no cost to you, and you will not be paid.

You can withdraw at any time, we ask you to complete the withdrawal form so we know how you would like any remaining samples or data about you that we have collected to be managed.

How to participate

  1. Read and understand the consent form.
  2. Complete an online questionnaire (you will be prompted to complete this after the consent form).
  3. Give a saliva (spit) and blood sample.
  4. Get your COVID-19 vaccine booster shot.
  5. One month later, complete a survey by email and give a saliva (spit) and blood sample.

The survey will ask you things about your health and lifestyle, and if you experienced any adverse reactions following any of your COVID-19 vaccine shots.

You can give your blood and saliva (spit) samples at a participating Queensland Health vaccination site, at a

participating Pathology Queensland collection centre or QML Pathology collection centre.

You can only go to one of the nominated pathology collection centres that are helping us run this study.

It’s important we receive both sets of samples to get the full benefit of this research.
