Bringing a Lyme Disease Vaccine Trial to Rural Areas Where There Are No Research Sites

Care Access Service Lines Utilized:

  • Our Research Sites
  • Mobile Screening Events
  • Site Support Solutions


  • This was not an “easy vaccine study”—the people who need to take part are in rural areas where clinical trials are rare.
  • Engaged communities to identify and screen participants through grassroots efforts.
  • Needed a dynamic site infrastructure to support participant demand and study capacity, as there is no historical knowledge of how each community would respond.
