“We’re honored to work with the agencies and organizations reinforcing safety and progress in vaccine research,” said Osborn. “We’ve enrolled thousands in COVID-19 vaccine trials, and we welcome the opportunity to collaborate and share our experience in recruiting patients for these trials.”

Meridian sites were the first in the US to enroll patients in Phase II and III COVID-19 vaccine studies. Operation Warp Speed (OWS) program officials Moncef Slaoui, chief advisor, and General Gustave F. Perna, chief operating officer, also visited Meridian’s internal medicine site in Savannah earlier this year. Meridian is conducting COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials at nine of its 23 sites.

Earlier this month, Meridian won the 2020 Vaccine Industry Excellence (ViE) award for Best Clinical Trial Site. Meridian is also the largest member of the Platinum Research Network, which won the ViE award for Best Clinical Trial Network.
