Clinical Trials

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.

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.
