CM9521s Influenza Vaccine

 Fusion Clinical Research, Norwood (formerly Travel Bug Vaccination Clinic)

Fusion Clinical Research is trialling a potential new seasonal influenza vaccine using mRNA technology, and we would like you to help us!

Seasonal influenza (otherwise known as the Flu) is a virus that causes the respiratory illness of the same name. Every year, seasonal influenza causes 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness and up to 650,000 deaths worldwide. Seasonal influenza generally affects people 65 years of age and older more severely but can adversely affect people of all ages.

Current seasonal influenza vaccines are usually only up to 60% effective. This trial involves mRNA-based flu vaccine to see if it is effective.
