Influenza is a common disease with associated symptoms of fever, muscle pain, and cough. Each year it is responsible for numerous hospitalizations and unfortunately high mortality levels.
The flu is caused by a group of viruses called orthomyxoviruses, and current vaccines do exist to protect against certain strains of these viruses. Though they don’t offer life-long immunity like many vaccines offer today, current vaccines help protect many people each year from the miserable and potentially life-threatening nature of influenza. Even with the current vaccines in use, there is still need to improve the coverage and efficacy offered by current flu vaccines.
You may qualify to participate in a research study currently assessing the safety and efficacy of an investigational flu vaccine.
Qualified participants will be compensated for time and travel. Study related vaccines and care are provided at no cost, without the need for health insurance.
If you’re ready to help us discover more effective flu vaccines, please take a moment to volunteer for an upcoming study by completing the form below.
A Study Volunteer Specialist will contact you when a study fitting your interest is available.
