AZ HEROES Research Study Expands To Include Children

A University of Arizona research study from the Zuckerman College of Public Health is expanding to include children. First launched in June 2020, the AZ HEROES (Arizona Healthcare, Emergency Response, and Other Essential Workers) study focuses on COVID-19 immunity and vaccine effectiveness among essential workers in Arizona. The new AZ HEROES Kids is an ancillary study to AZ HEROES and is now enrolling children ages 4 months – 17 years old. This announcement comes after the study has received $15M for a second year of funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
