Pneumococcal Vaccine Study

Participants needed: Babies at 2 months of age who were born healthy and at term (at least 37 weeks’ gestation).

Why are we doing this study: Pneumococcal disease is caused by the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae (SP). Although the vaccine is given as 3 shots at 2, 4, and 12 months of age, researchers would like to find out if it is possible to achieve the same protection using just 2 shots at 2 and 12 months.

The study involves: 6 visits over 11 months. Visits to the study clinic will include a blood test at each visit, poop samples, vaccinations at 2 and 12 months of age or vaccinations at 2, 4, and 12 months of age and questions about your baby’s health.

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