Pediatric Pneumococcal Vaccine
Qualified Healthy Volunteers can help further medical knowledge and may receive no cost investigational pneumococcal vaccine to possibly help prevent illnesses like pneumonia
JBR Clinical Research is looking for participants 15 months to 17 years of age in need of a pneumococcal vaccine.
Why participate in a clinical research study?
Clinical studies are what allow all medications to come to market, including drugs that treat pain, infections, and various medical conditions. Without clinical studies, no medications would be available for use and they are only possible with the help of participants like you. Compensation varies by study and time involved, and whether you complete all visits and procedures in the study. Every volunteer study at JBR Clinical Research is approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits to the volunteer.
What to expect.
Participants that qualify for the study, may receive at no cost an investigational pneumococcal vaccine that may help protect against Streptococcus pneumoniae that can cause illnesses like pneumonia, study related care, and compensation for time and travel.
The study consists of 2 visits and a phone call.
In order for your child to be considered for the pneumococcal vaccine study, please fill out and submit their information on the form or call 801-261-2000.

What is Pneumococcal Pneumonia?
In severe cases, pneumococcal pneumonia can put you in the hospital.
Pneumococcal pneumonia is not a cold or the flu. It’s a potentially serious lung disease that is caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, a common bacteria that can be spread from person to person through a cough or close contact. These bacteria can cause part of the lung to become inflamed and fill up with mucus, making it harder to breathe.
Symptoms of Pneumococcal pneumonia
Symptoms of pneumococcal pneumonia may include:
Common symptoms of pneumococcal pneumonia include high fever, excessive sweating and shaking chills, coughing, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath and chest pain. Certain symptoms, such as cough and fatigue, can appear without warning and may last for weeks, or longer.
How do you get pneumococcal pneumonia?
The bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia are called Streptococcus pneumoniae. These bacteria can spread from person to person through coughing or close contact. When these bacteria get into the lungs, they can cause some of the air sacs in the lungs to become inflamed and fill with mucus.
