Corona Immunitas: volunteers wanted, responding together

The Institute of Public Health is looking for volunteers ready to help during the serological study. Corona Immunitas Ticino is a project born in spring 2020. At the beginning of the pandemic, the newborn Institute of Public Health (IPH) joined the national programme Corona Immunitas to study the spread and impact of the coronavirus in the Swiss population. The project is composed of several parts and involves a representative sample of all groups of the Ticino population (from 5 to 100+ years).

In November participants blood samples will be tested. To meet the needs of all, to be able to act safely, to guarantee scientific rigour thanks to wide participation, but also for the desire to contribute to give a concrete response during the evolution of the pandemic, several possibilities will be offered. The new East campus will become one of the many pick-up points. Many activities must be carried out to make it possible.
