I registered with them weeks ago - haven't heard a thing.

I’m seeking to enroll in a COVID-19 vaccine trial because it is the only available option for protection, provided you’re among the 50% that actually get the vaccine versus sodium chloride injection. We all know our employers, business owners, community members do as they darn well please with regard to wearing masks or enforcing a mask policy. Just waiting on a response.
