Paid Vaccine Research Studies

Now enrolling in Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

Meridian is now enrolling people — including healthy adults — for paid influenza, RSV, COVID-19, and respiratory illness vaccine research studies. Studies may involve investigational medications, devices, vaccines, or interviews. Eligible participants can earn up to $2,500 (amounts differ per study).

Beyond helping advance medicine, you may also:

  • Get care from a local doctor at no cost
  • Receive study-related medical exams at no cost
  • Get paid for participating (amounts differ for each study)

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:

  • (712) 639-6200 (Cincinnati, Lincoln, Sioux City, Hastings, Grand Island, and Norfolk)

Friends and family referral program

Even if you can't join a clinical trial, you may be able to refer a friend, family member, neighbor, or colleague who can. You can get paid up to $50 for each successful referral made to Meridian. Meridian enrollment specialists can provide details when you sign up or call.
