STUDY BASICS

Are you the parent of a child under the age of 18? If so, you can sign your child up for the Pittsburgh Vaccine Clinical Trial Unit Registry—a group of people who agree to be contacted when a new vaccine is ready to be tested. Consent to participate in this research study can be done online. Compensation provided if a blood sample is collected.


STUDY PURPOSE

Vaccines help prevent people from getting sick and reduce the spread of infectious diseases. As healthcare providers and scientists at UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh work together to develop new vaccines, research participants are needed to take part in clinical trials to test them. The purpose of the Pittsburgh Vaccine Clinical Trial Unit Registry is to collect a list of people who may be interested in participating in vaccine-related clinical trials in the future.


COULD THIS STUDY BE RIGHT FOR YOUR CHILD?
  • Ages 17 or younger
  • Parent willing to provide consent for the study team to view their child’s medical records
  • Parent willing to allow their child to have a blood draw

WHAT PARTICIPANTS CAN EXPECT

To join the registry, basic information about your child will be collected and the study team will review your child’s current medical conditions. Some parents may also be asked to allow their child to have a blood draw. If an appropriate vaccine clinical trial is identified, the study team will contact you again in the future to find out if you would like to consider having your child participate.
