You May Be Able to Help Protect Your Future—And the World
In today’s world, we are learning so much about how vaccines help keep people healthy. Vaccines aim to protect people against getting sick with disease. By joining the CMVibe Trial, you are helping to study a potential new vaccine for cytomegalovirus (CMV).
You may not notice you have CMV when you’re first infected, but CMV could lead to serious issues if you have children someday when you are older. If you pass CMV to your unborn child, it can result in birth defects such as hearing loss, vision loss, and cerebral palsy.1 Cerebral palsy makes muscle control difficult. Children with cerebral palsy may need special equipment to walk or may not be able to walk at all. They may also have joint problems, speech problems, or seizures.
If we could advance research of a potential vaccine for kids and teens like you against CMV, we may potentially be able to help protect future generations—those related to you and others around the world.
