SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Study - Pediatric Sub-study

Mom adjusting child's maskDo you want to learn how your child’s body responds to the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine? We are currently recruiting children between the ages 5-17, both with and without Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) at BC Children’s Hospital.

Our study will involve antibody testing before and after vaccination, including an optional microbiome component. The purpose is to understand how vaccine dosing schedules and pre-existing antibodies impact your long-term response to SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.
