  • Pediatric Chickenpox Vaccine Study

    • This study is looking at different strengths of a potential new investigational vaccine against chickenpox. The study will look at how safe the vaccine is and will also determine whether it works to help prevent chickenpox in children. Children who are 12-15 months of age, in good health, and have received the first 3 doses (primary series) of a pneumococcal conjugate vaccine may qualify.

    • Meningococcal disease refers to any illness caused by the bacteria Neisseria meningitides. This includes Meningitis, an infection of the brain/spinal cord and Septicemia, an infection of the bloodstream. Both are very serious and can become deadly in a matter of hours. If left untreated, meningococcal disease can lead to deafness, brain damage, or can even be fatal.
