Authored by

The purpose of this phase 3 study is to evaluate the safety, local reactions (reactogenicity), capacity to form antibodies against the coronavirus (immunogenicity) and long-term persistence of those antibodies following two doses of a Health Canada approved RNA-based COVID-19 vaccine in patients with rheumatic diseases.

Two doses from the Moderna vaccine will be administered intramuscularly. The time between dose 1 and dose 2 of the vaccine will be 28 days.

This research study will recruit 220 participants (165 patients and 55 healthy controls), men and women, aged 18 years or older.
