PRIEST

Pandemic Respiratory Infection Emergency System Triage

The purpose of this study is to test a new vaccine, ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, against COVID-19 in healthy volunteers.

The ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine has been developed in Oxford in an effort to protect healthy people from the pandemic. This study will evaluate the safety of the vaccine and its ability to generate an immune response against the virus.  

This is a randomised trial. Participants will be randomly allocated to receive either the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine, or a Men ACWY (meningitus vaccine). Volunteers will not be told which vaccine they will receive.

Participants will be asked to return for 6 visits across 12 months to evaluate their health.

Across the UK the trial aims to recruit 10,260 volunteers.
