Do you need your MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine?

If you are due to receive your MMR vaccination and are ages 18 or older, are healthy, without autoimmune disorders (non-immunocompromised), have never had an allergic reaction to any vaccine, and you are willing to have blood drawn three times during the study then you may qualify for a clinical trial seeking to identify biomarkers that may help researchers improve the effectiveness of the MMR vaccine. Eligible participants will receive the FDA-approved MMR immunization and then have blood drawn 3 times, one week apart. Compensation is provided for each completed study visit. For more information or to see if you qualify, call (205) 996-4099.
