You may be able to help us with research to develop a vaccine that could potentially protect people from RSV.
What is RSV?
You may not have heard of Respiratory Syncytial Virus, RSV for short, but it can cause respiratory illnesses in people of all ages. It is common enough that most children contract an RSV-related infection by the time they turn 2 years old.
Although RSV typically results in a relatively mild, cold-like illness, it can also result in more serious infections of the lungs and other parts of the respiratory system. Babies and seniors are the most likely to get serious RSV illness, such as pneumonia, that leads to hospitalization.
Currently, there is no vaccine for RSV. Vaccines are an essential element of health care, helping to prevent diseases that were once widespread. Today, vaccines protect more people than ever, providing significant benefits for all ages, from babies to teens to adults to seniors. Yet the work is far from done.
This clinical research study will assess the safety of and immune response to an investigational Respiratory Syncytial Virus vaccine (RSV vaccine for short) when given at the same time with an approved vaccine to prevent tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap). This study will also help us understand if having a Tdap vaccine at the same time as the investigational RSV vaccine changes how well either of these vaccines work.
