Participants Needed for COVID-19 Vaccine and Therapeutic Trials
The mRNA-1273 vaccine is being developed to prevent COVID-19. The purpose of this study is to test Moderna’s vaccine candidate to see if it can prevent illness if people are exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in their everyday lives. The mRNA-1273 vaccine is not made from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It is made from messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), a genetic code that tells cells how to make protein, which helps the body’s immune system make antibodies to fight the virus. The vaccine cannot cause infection or make someone sick with COVID-19.
Phase 3 studies are where researchers can ask the questions, “Does this product prevent new infections? Or if people do become infected, does the product help them control the infection so that it doesn’t become severe disease?” These studies involve many thousands of people, usually including some participants who are at increased risk for infection.

Emory overseas the two USA-based sites and the protocol specific site in the Philippines, while CDC overseas the two additional international sites.
