Researchers at the Telethon Kids Institute are looking for healthy mums and their bubs to take part in an important new study aiming to give young babies vital protection against influenza.
Influenza is the most common vaccine-preventable disease and babies under six months of age are at the highest risk of life-threatening complications. Annual flu vaccinations are currently recommended for babies aged six months and over, leaving young babies unprotected when they are most vulnerable.
The FluBub Study will investigate if the influenza vaccine can be given to babies at two months of age instead, providing much-needed protection earlier in life.
If you or someone you know is aged between 25 – 35 and has a new baby less than eight weeks’ old, we would love to hear from you. More information about the FluBub Study can be found at infectiousdiseases.telethonkids.org.au/our-research/vaccine-trials-group/current-studies/flubub/
Please contact the study staff at the Vaccine Trials Group – part of the Wesfarmers Centre of Vaccines and Infectious Diseases based at Telethon Kids Institute to register your interest.
