Developing a Vaccine Most medicines are used to help people who are already sick. But vaccines are intended to keep you from becoming sick. Before a vaccine can be approved, it must be shown to be safe and effective through the clinical trial process. Every modern vaccine and medicine we have today was studied in hundreds to thousands of people before becoming available to the public.
About This COVID-19 Vaccine StudyThis study involves comparing an investigational vaccine against a placebo (inactive substance) to see if the investigational vaccine can prevent COVID-19. The vaccine is given by injection.
What to Expect In addition to answering any questions you may have, the study doctor will discuss the study risks and potential benefits to help you decide if this is the right study for you.
If you are enrolled in the study, you will be randomly assigned (by chance) to receive the study vaccine or placebo (inactive substance). This assignment will be made by a computer and not by the study team. Neither you nor the study doctor will know if you are receiving a study vaccine or a placebo.
You will receive 2 injections about 3 weeks apart. The study doctor will explain to you when you will have your two injections. After the second injection, you will have additional follow up visits to monitor your health.
