About The Lyme Disease Vaccine Study
Lyme disease is a common illness caused by a bacteria found in ticks. Bites from infected ticks can transfer the bacteria to humans and cause rashes, fever, and fatigue. Children account for a large portion of those at the greatest risk of Lyme disease. If left untreated, Lyme disease can progress to cause severe, sometimes permanent symptoms. Currently, there are no approved vaccines available to prevent Lyme disease.
VALOR is an ongoing clinical trial which has already enrolled more than 4,000 adults and 300 children. This study is evaluating if an investigational Lyme vaccine is safe and effective for preventing Lyme disease in people who have been exposed through tick bites.
Joining a clinical trial is an important decision. We hope it is one your family will consider.
Who Can Participate
Healthy children 5 years of age or older who live in or often visit outdoor areas that may expose them to ticks may be eligible to participate. Study participants cannot have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease within 3 months of enrollment.
Activities that may increase the risk of Lyme Disease include:
Note: There are other requirements to participate in this study. A study team member will help determine if this study is a good fit for your child.
What To Expect
Before You Continue...
A first step as you consider this study is to answer a 5-minute online questionnaire about your child's health and medical history. If your answers show the study might be a good fit for your child, you may choose to be referred to a study clinic that you select. You will then be asked to provide your contact information for a study representative to contact you and discuss the next steps. Only the study staff can determine if you meet the study's eligibility criteria and are able to enroll in the study.

We're sorry, but your child is not eligible at this time...
Thank you so much for your interest in our Lyme Disease vaccine study and for answering our questions.
There may be other Pfizer research studies enrolling in your area in the future. If you would like to be notified about future research opportunities, we will collect your name,phone number, and email address so that a study representative may contact you about other research studies. Your contact information will not be used for any other purposes.
The individual responses you've provided will be used by Pfizer, or our partners supporting this study, to look for areas of improvement such as revising the criteria for participation in this study. Pfizer study team members and our partners will have access to reports containing aggregated data that will not be directly linked back to you. All information is stored on servers in the United States.
So far - So good!
Your child appears to meet the basic requirements for this Lyme disease vaccine study. However, only the research study staff can fully determine if he or she qualifies to enroll. Please enter your contact information and select "Find a Site" to see if there is a study site enrolling in your area. By submitting this form, you confirm that you are at least 18 years of age (or the legal age of consent in your state if it over 18) and that Pfizer or our partners may contact you about information related to research studies enrolling in your area.
