Free health check and vaccination against meningitis

Richmond Pharmacology Ltd is a clinical trials unit which carries out studies for investigational medicines (i.e. not yet marketed) on healthy male and female volunteers. These investigational medicines often require the volunteers to be vaccinated due to the way the drug effects the body.

Therefore, we are inviting you to take part in a screening (i.e. a general health check) and vaccination project (referred to as ‘project’ from now on) offering free screening and vaccinations against Neisseria meningitidis A, B, C, W and Y bacteria which can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections, including meningitis and sepsis (blood poisoning).

Paid clinical trial for healthy volunteers

This project enables you to partake in any study that requires Meningitis A, B, C, W and Y immunity, if you wish to do so.

If you are enrolled in this project, you will not be obliged to participate in any future study.
