Flu Vaccine Study

Participants needed: Healthy children ages 6-23 months who have never received the flu shot.

Why are we doing this study: Influenza (flu) is a highly contagious respiratory infection caused by an influenza virus. Children are especially vulnerable and at greater risk of flu complications. Researchers would like to compare 2 licensed flu vaccines to find out which one provides better protection for young children.

The study involves: 7 visits over 18 months at the VEC located at the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute in Vancouver. Visits will include blood tests, 3 flu shots (over 2 seasons), and questions about your child’s health.

You will receive: Eligible participants will be reimbursed for travel/parking costs and receive an honorarium at each visit.
