What are clinical studies or trials?
Clinical studies or trials look at
new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. They are vital during
vaccine development as they check to see if a new vaccine works and is
safe in humans.
Why do people volunteer?
People take part in clinical trials for
various reasons. Vaccine studies usually need healthy volunteers and
those volunteers say they want to help others and to advance medical
science. Participating in vaccine clinical trials offers an opportunity
to help researchers prevent disease.
