The University is looking for volunteers who will get paid to get the two doses of the vaccine. The city has a large variety of ethnicities and ages, so it's ideal for trying a new medical solution to this problem.

This vaccine in particular is made by pharmaceutical Moderna Inc, with headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Other companies like Pfizer and other universities like Oxford are also in the same test period, hoping to be the first in this race against the clock for humanity survival.
