Texas Cares COVID Antibody Survey

The Texas Coronavirus Antibody Response Survey , or Texas CARES , is a survey that will help us better understand the human antibody response to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Survey participants will help us measure things like how many people in the survey have COVID-19 antibodies, and how long those antibodies last. 

Spanish Meducation® Is Now Online
