1. Influenza Vaccine Study

The Division of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology is looking for individuals, either between ages 18 and 74, or ages 75 and older, to participate in an influenza vaccination study that will evaluate immune function in older adults.

To determine whether you are eligible for the study, we will ask some questions about your health over the phone. If you are eligible and agree to participate, you will receive a brief history and physical exam by a doctor, as well as the influenza vaccine (flu shot). You also be asked to donate blood samples before and after the "flu shot." We will follow up with you by phone to check on how you're doing throughout the flu season (usually lasts until the end of April).

For more information, please contact the study coordinator at 410-550-2113.
