Below you will find information about this National Vaccine Research Study for Transplant Recipients

COVID-19 Antibody Testing of Recipients of Solid Organ Transplants is being led by the transplant team at Johns Hopkins. Our principal investigator is Jacqueline Garonzik Wang, MD PhD, Associate Professor Of Surgery. The study has been approved by the Johns Hopkins Institutional Review Board (IRB00248540)

The purpose of this research study is to determine COVID-19 antibody levels in transplant recipients
who get the COVID-19 vaccine. The study does not provide the vaccine, and study team members will not be offering guidance as to whether or not one should receive a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. If participants have received or will be receiving a vaccine and are interested in the study, we will collect a blood sample before vaccination when possible, and collect samples at sequential time points post-immunization.

We are now enrolling transplant recipients for this observational study. For more information visit or e-mail
