We seek to educate the public about how clinical trials work and the critical need to recruit diverse participants.
Two COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials are currently underway in Nebraska. Meridian Clinical Research is looking for participants who are 12-17 years of age.
These trials are in Phase 3 which is when the effectiveness of the vaccines are tested. Each vaccine has already cleared the first two phases where safety is tested.
If you or a loved one are interested in participating, visit www.mcrmed.com/covid.
Quality Clinical Research is also participating in a COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial. For more information, call 402-934-0044.
More trials are coming to Nebraska in the near future. Check back here for more opportunities in coming weeks.
The New York Times has an understandable Vaccine Tracker which includes a simple summary of the different phases of clinical trials.
