Clinical Trial Summary

The goal of the present study is to evaluate a pilot intervention (LinkUP) to improve the uptake of COVID-19 testing and vaccination among PWID in San Diego County. Results will be shared with RADxUP consortium members, policymakers and program planners in California and across the US and used to estimate effect sizes for a future efficacy trial. Our study will inform efforts to leverage any of the 185 SSPs around the US as 'touchpoints' to reach marginalized communities, strengthening the nation's pandemic preparedness infrastructure to reduce COVID-19 health disparities.


Clinical Trial Description

Together with our community partner, the Harm Reduction Coalition of San Diego's (HRCSD) OnPoint, a mobile safe syringe program (SSP), we will evaluate develop and evaluate an intervention to improve uptake of COVID-19 testing and vaccination. Our Study Aims are : 1. To adapt an existing behavioral intervention incorporating motivational interviewing (MI) to improve uptake of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis among people who inject drugs (PWID), by replacing the educational content with information intended to improve uptake of COVID19 testing and COVID19 vaccination. 2. To pilot test the intervention in Aim 1 (called LinkUP) at OnPoint's 4 mobile SSP locations across San Diego County. We expect that the LinkUP intervention will be acceptable to PWID and considered feasible and sustainable by OnPoint staff and the project's Community Scientific Advisory Board (CSAB). ;
