NHS researchers in the UK are working together to help find a vaccine against COVID-19.
Many possible COVID-19 vaccines are being tested in the UK. Different vaccines may work better for different groups of people. It's important we include people from all backgrounds and ages in our research. This gives researchers an understanding of how well each vaccine may work.
All COVID-19 vaccines being researched in the NHS have gone through strict safety testing, and have been approved by a number of processes. We use the same high standards to COVID research as we do to all NHS research.
We are still looking for volunteers for studies in the North East and North Cumbria to find a vaccine against COVID-19.

Coronavirus Information - Children
It can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell during the coronavirus pandemic. Remember that the NHS is still providing safe care.
GP practices and hospitals have made changes to help reduce the risk of infection. Only one parent/carer will be able to attend A&E with their child.
Please use the hand sanitisers provided, wear a face covering in enclosed spaces and maintain social distancing. Remember: if your child is unwell, seek advice and medical attention.
