60+? Be part of an important clinical trial.


At Winterberry we believe in helping patients and our communities live their best lives. Part of reaching that goal is being active in clinical trials that work toward better health for everyone.

At this time we are inviting you to learn more about participating in a clinical trial for a potential vaccine to prevent respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection. By participating in this trial, you could potentially change the future of RSV.

What is RSV?

RSV is a common respiratory virus that infects the
lungs and breathing passages. It is the second leading
cause of significant respiratory tract illnesses in adults,
behind only influenza (flu).1

About the ConquerRSV Trial

The purpose of this clinical trial is to assess the safety of an investigational vaccine (a vaccine not yet approved by a country’s drug regulatory agency) aimed at preventing RSV infection in women and men over 60.

About Moderna’s Investigational Vaccine

Moderna is studying mRNA-1345, an investigational vaccine, to understand whether it can help your body’s immune system protect against RSV.

Normally, vaccines for viruses are made from a weakened or inactive version of the virus. However, mRNA-1345 is different. The mRNA-1345 vaccine is a messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine. This mRNA is entirely made in a laboratory and instructs your body to make small pieces of proteins.

In this case, the vaccine contains the mRNA code for the RSV glycoprotein F, which does not cause RSV infection but helps the body’s immune system recognize and protect itself if it encounters the virus. You cannot become infected with RSV from receiving the investigational vaccine.

Who Can Join the ConquerRSV Trial?

This clinical trial is looking for adult volunteers. To join, you must be:

  • 60 years of age or older
  • In good health
    • Certain chronic diseases such as heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease may be permissible
  • Primarily responsible for self-care (do not require a caretaker)

The clinical trial staff will explain additional trial requirements and can answer any questions you may have.

Clinical trial volunteers have the right to stop participating in the trial at any time and do not have to give a reason. Insurance is not needed to join this clinical trial. Compensation for your time may be provided.
