PREVENT-COVID: A Study for IBD Patients who have Received a COVID-19 Vaccine

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how well the COVID-19 vaccine works for patients with IBD. This includes people with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. We want to learn more about side effects, and whether the vaccine impacts IBD activity. This study does not provide the COVID-19 vaccine and is only for people who have already received at least 1 vaccine.
