COVID-19 study

The ZOE COVID Symptom Study app is the world’s largest ongoing study of COVID-19, with over four and half million contributors. The app has played, and continues to play, a pivotal role in the fight against COVID-19, from identifying high risk areas and people, to generating scientific understanding of symptoms.

The app is delivered in collaboration with King’s Health Partners, an Academic Health Sciences Centre based in south east London.

We are encouraging people who have received a COVID-19 vaccine, to log this in the app, and encourage others they know to do the same. This will help build a picture of the real-world impact of the vaccine rollout, its effects on reducing transmission and help the NHS continue to lead the world in COVID-19 research.

App users are asked to take one minute a day to report their health, including after receiving the vaccine, as this builds our understanding of this disease. The more we understand, the more we can help end the pandemic.
