The National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) launched on Thursday a massive appeal for volunteers who wish to participate in the testing campaigns of one of the 300 vaccine projects against Covid-19 developed around the world.
Inserm has created an online questionnaire to invite volunteers to make themselves known.
The profiles will then be selected according to precise criteria.
The Institute hopes to recruit 25,000 people in France.
All people over 18, including the oldest
" can apply, said on France Info Odile Launay, responsible for coordinating the platform of French volunteers. People who suffer from pathologies favoring complications are not excluded from this process, quite the contrary. “
We have identified a number of health problems that promote the onset of complications and the risk of death. All these people are encouraged to register, [whether they have] heart problems, lung problems, diabetes. It is really an approach within the framework of a project for the population, for the community and there in this case for the Covid, for the most vulnerable people
”, specifies Odile Launay.
