IMmuno-Phenotyping Assessment of a Cohort To Vaccination (IMPACT V)
Key Proposal Details

1. Identify and sample a cohort of individuals post-vaccination for long term impact of the vaccine

2. Identify and sample a cohort of individuals for antibody assessment of convalescent plasma from infected patients 2 months post infection

3. Monitor longitudinally anti-SARS-CoV-2 humoral immune response through qualitative and quantitative assessment of antibodies in the cohort

4. Develop and maintain a cryorepository of post-vaccination and convalescent plasma biological samples for future retrospective analysis

The results can provide valuable inputs for planning further phases of the vaccination campaign, and will also support confidence-building for vaccination. The results will represent the largest post vaccination immune response study so far in the country. The implementation of this program will thus result in a significant milestone in the delineating the antibody response to SARS-CoV2 in India and its application to COVID 19 pandemic and human infectious disease.
