Children’s Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Vaccine Study

Now open in NE & NY

Illnesses caused by severe respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) can affect a baby’s lungs and respiratory system. While there is currently no approved vaccine to prevent RSV infection, scientists are researching an investigational nasal spray vaccine.

Eligible participants…

  • Must be age 6 to 36 months
  • Must be up to date on CDC-recommended pediatric immunizations
  • May receive a non-active placebo to see how it compares to the investigational nasal spray (this is a placebo-controlled study)
  • Must NOT have household or close contact (including but not limited to daycare) for 21 days post-inoculation with anyone <6 months old or those who are immunocompromised
  • Do not need insurance to join this study
