Michigan-Ford Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness (MFIVE) Study
This CDC-funded study works in partnership with other national sites to conduct active surveillance of individuals with medically-attended acute respiratory illness (active since 2010). The University of Michigan team works with 12 ambulatory clinics across southeast Michigan to collect data on viral illnesses. Along with the CDC, this team will be collecting self-swabs and clinical data to evaluate the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and risk factors for COVID-19 across the US.
This is part of the CDC’s US Flu VE Network.
