Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Clinical trials for coronavirus vaccines continue and volunteers are still needed. Velocity Clinical Research in Medford is currently recruiting up to 400 people to take part in coronavirus vaccine studies.

Velocity Clinical Research owns 14 clinical trials sites in 10 states across the US. The Medford site is actively enrolling patients in three adult and two adolescent studies.

It’s estimated that 100,000 volunteers are needed across all active studies in the US in order to create a more effective COVID vaccine solution for the entire US population.
