Covid-19 Oxford Vaccine Trial Swab Kit Instructions

These instructions regarding Covid-19 home swab kits are only for the participants of the Covid-19 Oxford Vaccine Trial.

There are multiple versions of home swab kits so your kit may look different to the pictures in the instructions. If you have any questions please contact your study site.

Please do not send asymptomatic (symptom free) weekly swabs after 30th June 2021.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 please contact your study team for advice on testing.
If you have leftover swabs packs after 30th June 2021 these can only be used if you have been advised to have an NHS home test and not for asymptomatic (symptom free) testing and if the test kit components have not passed their expiry date.
