At Atrium Health, we’re committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients – and advancing care for all. As we continue to move forward in our goal of healthier futures, we are working on developing new vaccines. We look to our community to engage in this mission with us.

Vaccines have helped save lives and improve health worldwide for over 50 years. They have saved countless lives and given hope. Vaccines can prevent serious infections and complications that come from those infections, including brain damage, blindness, deafness, paralysis, and death. For example, we have all been impacted by the vaccines developed and used to fight COVID-19, and we are committed to continue the work of prevention that vaccines make possible.

  • There are many infections, some new and some that have been around a long time, that threaten health.
  • Vaccines need to be studied in people of different ages, races, and communities so that we can be sure they work well, and are safe, FOR ALL.

Vaccines are the best way to fight infections—stopping viruses and bacteria before they can cause disease.

Clinical researchers here and around the world are working to develop safe and effective vaccines to fight off and prevent many types of infections. We work closely with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and research scientists to study these carefully. We invite you to have a role in creating a healthier future by becoming a member of our STRIVE Vaccine Research Registry.

We are looking for volunteers who want to learn about – and possibly join – vaccine research studies. We are studying vaccines that give us new and better protection against common viruses and infections like influenza (flu), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), pneumonia, skin infections, chicken pox, shingles, and more. If you’d like to help be part of this work, please consider signing up.

How does it work? When you sign up for the STRIVE registry, we will ask you to give us some information about you and your health. We will use that to see if you are eligible for studies that may be going on, and contact you.

From time to time, we will also send some information about vaccines and vaccine research, so that you can stay informed.

Have questions or want more information? Call 833-451-1188.

Frequently asked questions

The purpose of this registry is to help us create a list of people who are interested in learning more about and possibly volunteering for vaccine research trials in the future.

We have many studies that we are working on and want to include as many interested people, from across all ages and parts of our community, as we can.

If you sign up for this registry, you are NOT signing up for a vaccine research study. You are signing up to learn more about vaccine studies and to be contacted about vaccine studies in the future.

Sign up for our vaccine registry if:

  • You would like to learn about vaccine trials
  • You are possibly interested in volunteering for a vaccine trial in the future

Signing up means:

  • You may get information about vaccine research sent to you
  • The information you provide will be reviewed by the vaccine research team
  • You may be contacted by the vaccine research team about vaccine studies

We have vaccine studies here that go beyond COVID-19. We have realized that people all across our region are interested in vaccines as a way to improve health. We have a vision that people across all parts of our community—all ages, all races, all ethnic groups—join in this work, to help us have more confidence.
