VaccinationClinical trials are scientific research studies intended to discover better ways to treat or prevent diseases.

Participants in clinical trials can play a more active role in their own health care, gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available, and help others by contributing to medical research.

Doctors use clinical trials to understand safety and effectiveness of new treatments or vaccines. Such studies are vital to the development of new vaccines to prevent disease.

VaccinationWe may have different clinical studies taking place at any given time.
