Full Title
The role of neutrophils in the age-driven decline in anti-pneumococcal vaccine responses
The University at Buffalo (UB) Department of Microbiology and Immunology is looking for healthy adults aged 21 – 40 or above 60 years old for a vaccine study.

Visit 1 will involve a blood draw, the vaccine administration, and paperwork. Visit 2 will occur 1 week later and will include a blood draw. Visit 3 will occur 1 month later and include a blood draw. Participants will be paid $50 per study visit.
