Organization conducting clinical trials for coronavirus vaccine looks for volunteers
Two clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines are expected to begin next month in the Rio Grande Valley.
Centex Studies Inc. has worked in the Valley for the last four years.
Devora Torrence is the president and CEO of Centex Studies. She says they will be conducting two different COVID-19 vaccine trials, which are scheduled to begin in August. They're looking for volunteers.
Torrence says the trial is free to anyone interested and participants will be paid for their time and travel.
Their end goal is ultimately to help get a safe and effective vaccine on the market to tackle COVID-19.
