The COVID-19 Prevention Network (CoVPN) is conducting a study at select university campuses across the country to learn whether the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine stops the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 disease.

While the study will enroll college students over a five-month period, results are expected later this year and are critical to explain the extent to which the vaccine may prevent asymptomatic infection and onward transmission of SARS-CoV-2. With the U.S. having the highest number of infections and deaths from COVID-19 disease of any nation in the world, this study is vital to making informed public policy decisions in the coming year. Should the vaccine be found to work primarily by reducing symptoms – preventing severe disease and saving the lives of those vaccinated but not curbing ongoing viral transmission — studies project that the number of asymptomatic infections could rise, which would increase transmission and prolong the pandemic.
