Now, the staff of the institute are hoping to provide leadership in the vaccination programme of the country.

Vaccination programmes in other countries have been affected by concerns of the safety of some of the vaccines available.

Certain countries have stopped the Astra Zeneca vaccine due to reports of blood clots. The usage Johnson and Johnson vaccine was also stopped at a point.

Due to these safety concerns, the Noguchi is carrying out a research in hopes that it would provide some answers and solutions.

They want to recruit volunteers who will take the MR vaccine before taking the COVID-19 vaccine.

They want to compare what happens if people take the MR vaccine before taking the COVID-19 vaccine.

To participate, you must be 18 years and older, shouldn’t have COVID-19 infection and must have a smart phone or access to a computer.

This will certainly help provide them with the data they need to ensure and effective inoculation exercise in the country.
