Meridian is now seeking participants — including healthy adults — for paid COVID-19 vaccine research studies in the following locations: Georgia (Savannah), Nebraska (Norfolk and Omaha), and South Dakota (Dakota Dunes).
These studies will help determine the safety and efficacy of investigational vaccines intended to protect against SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19). Eligible participants:
- Will get paid for participating (amounts differ for each study)
- May receive care and exams from a local doctor at no cost
- May receive an investigational vaccine or placebo
- Do not need health insurance to join
After you submit your information a Meridian enrollment specialist will contact you. Together, we'll review studies that might be right for you and answer your questions.
Health insurance is NOT required to join. There is never an obligation to participate — we're here to help you make the best decision.
For more information about these studies, you can talk to a Meridian enrollment specialist by calling one of our call centers: (402) 934-7563 (NE, SD) • (912) 623-2240 (GA).
