Community Pharmacies Engaging in Operation Warp Speed - You Can Help

An opportunity for CPESN pharmacies, colleges/schools of pharmacy, and student pharmacists to contribute to their communities has come to pass through the work of the University of Washington and Fred Hutch Research Center to help patients register into a database to make them eligible for COVID-19 vaccine trials.


CPESN has been working with the COVID-19 Prevention Network to incorporate community pharmacies into this large-scale effort, and they've responded enthusiastically about the idea of using trusted, local health care professionals to help register their patients and neighbors. Faculty, staff, and student pharmacists can be a part of these efforts!


It is estimated that 1.5 million persons will need to register into the database to help researchers determine who to call on to participate in the trials based on a number of factors like: geography, work status, commuting method, age, conditions, etc. Click here for more information on the COVID-19 Prevention Network.


How to help:

  1. Go to: https://www.coronaviruspreventionnetwork.org/ and register yourself.

  2. Consider how your college/school of pharmacy can help these efforts. Check out https://www.covidbestpractices.com/registering-volunteers-for-trials and share the link with colleagues and students. Encourage student organizations to include Operation Warp Speed in their community outreach efforts!

This is a 100% voluntary effort, yet it is also an opportunity to contribute and represent the pharmacy profession well. At the end of the registration, there is a space for a site code. CPESN's site code is: RXRX or RxRx (not case sensitive). Use it! It will help in tracking our collective contribution.


Thanks for taking a moment to contribute and spread the word!
