Study participants wanted for MMR study

As part of a clinical study of the Institute of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Prevention, we are looking for participants who would be willing to take part in our research project.


We are investigating the immunity of people who have previously been fully vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), i.e. twice. We also want to find out how immunity to measles, mumps and rubella develops after a booster vaccination, i.e. a third vaccination.
