USF Health to test vaccine on children

August 13, 2021 - The University of South Florida announced its Morsani College of Medicine was selected as a site for clinical trial testing of the Moderna mRNA-1273 Covid-19 vaccine on pediatric patients. The vaccine will be tested on children from six months to 11 years old. Moderna hopes to enroll 12,000 kids from the U.S. and Canada for this Phase 2/3 research study, called KidCOVE. USF Health research physicians now seek Tampa Bay area volunteers to participate in the KidCOVE study to evaluate their safety and immune responses. Three out of four participants will receive the vaccine, and all participants will be monitored for 12 months for their health and safety.
