Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) can cause infections of the lungs and respiratory tract. Symptoms can be similar to a cold, and may include runny nose, sore throat, cough, and headache. RSV can lead to serious conditions like pneumonia, especially for children and seniors.
Researchers are now studying vaccines intended to prevent the spread of RSV. Help stop the spread of this dangerous and prevalent virus — join an RSV vaccine study at Meridian. Eligible participants will receive compensation for study-related time and travel. Health insurance is not needed to join.
