Research study on vaccine-preventable diseases?

Posted by: ethan - Posted on:

Do you want to take part in a research study and help protect you and your community against vaccine-preventable diseases?

  • Were you born in a country other than the UK, or do you identify as being from a Mixed, Black, Asian, or Other (non-White) ethnic group?
  • Are you aged 16 years or older?
  • Would you like to take an active role in research that may influence primary care policy and help improve your own and your community’s health?

The Vacc on Track study is running at GP surgeries in London. If you are interested, staff at your GP surgery can check your vaccination history and refer you for any vaccines and boosters needed to protect you against vaccine-preventable diseases, such as measles, diphtheria and polio. This service is completely free and can be done during a short telephone conversation with a trained nurse.

If you were born overseas or come from an ethnic minority community and are aged 16 years or over, you may be eligible to take part. In return you will play an important part in a research study and be helping to look after your own and your community’s health.
