    Default Opportunity to get the norovirus vaccine

    The company that is developing the norovirus vaccine, Takeda, is recruiting volunteers to be inoculated with the vaccine. This is not a challenge study. No one will be infected with norovirus as a result of this study.

    The volunteers will be given the vaccine and then checked up on at one-year intervals to see how it's working. If you can get in on the study, you will be able to be vaccinated years before the rest of us will be.

    You might be able to get in on the study if you live in or near one of these places:
    • Antwerpen, Belgium
    • Gent, Belgium
    • Birmingham, Alabama
    • Fountain Hills, Arizona
    • Littleton, Colorado
    • Miami, Florida
    • Lenexa, Kansas
    • St. Louis, Missouri
    • Endwell, New York
    • Rochester, New York
    • Austin, Texas
    • Seattle, Washington


    If you want to sign up for the study, call the Takeda Study Registration Call Center at (877) 825-3327

    The NCT number for the study is NCT03039790.

    I would never do this. You don't know what kind of side effects you could get! And I am not an anti-vaccine person. But for noro? I'd be way too afraid. More power to all the brave people who volunteer!

    Interesting. So this means they’re at the point of testing where they’ve proven that it’s effective, and are now testing if it interferes with other medications or medical conditions.

    That's amazing news! I didn't know they were still seriously researching it! I live really close to Antwerpen but I'm way to scared to be a test subject for stuff like that but knowing that there might come a day that my mind and other emetophobes their mind will be more at peace is amazing!

    My fear would be that the common side-effects of this vaccine would be nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. In other words, noro-like symptoms. My other fear would be that it wouldn't work.
    As with most - if not all - vaccines, there's no guarantee that everyone will be 100% immune. So what would be the point? Also, as with all new medications... who knows what the unforeseen complications of injecting this into your body could be - so much could go wrong. I'm not trying to fear-monger here, if you want to get the vaccine, by all means do it - it's your decision. I'm just voicing my personal fears about this vaccine.

    Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are not side effects of the norovirus vaccine. That would be ridiculous. The vaccine has been shown to lessen the occurrence of norovirus and to reduce the severity of norovirus in those who get it. I will definitely get it when it is available but I am not able to get in this trial.

    I agree 100% with everything you said. I wouldn't take this vaccine even if forced upon me. Lol.

    Thank you Doug! I'm actually considering doing it as I live near Seattle.

    Dang it! It looks like you have to have previously participated in a noro study in order to participate in this one. Here is what it say online:

    Exclusion Criteria:
    Participation in any clinical trial is allowed, on condition that no investigational product is administered within 30 days prior to blood sampling.
    In the opinion of the investigator, the participant is not medically eligible to provide blood specimens.

    I'm going to keep an eye on these and hope that eventually, they're recruiting volunteers in Canada! Unless I'd be able to participate in one in Seattle, as I'm only a few hours north.
