Date:7/31/2020

Leaders of the Operation Warp Speed (OWS) program visited Meridian Clinical Research’s internal medicine site in Savannah, GA. Visitors included Moncef Slaoui, chief advisor, and General Gustave F. Perna, chief operating officer, of OWS.

In May, the federal government announced the OWS program to accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics.

Paul Bradley, MD, principal investigator at Meridian, enrolled the first patient into a Phase III COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial at the Savannah site on Monday, July 27, 2020. Meridian is conducting Phase III COVID-19 clinical trials at nine sites nationwide.

The Phase III clinical trials will help determine the safety and efficacy of investigational vaccines intended to protect against COVID-19. Eligible participants must be 18 or older, and will receive study-related exams, and an investigational COVID-19 vaccine or placebo at no cost. As part of these studies, Meridian is also seeking:

  • People who may be in close, regular contact with infected persons; this may include, but is not limited to essential workers, healthcare workers, first responders, manufacturing/factory workers, teachers, transit workers, etc.
  • People with underlying health conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, asthma, etc.
  • Healthy individuals age 18+ with no known history of COVID-19 infection.

Eligible participants will receive compensation for participating and do not need health insurance to join. People interested in joining a study can sign up for more information at mcrmed.com/covid-19-vaccine-study.
