Seeking Diverse Participants for ENSEMBLE Study of COVID-19 Vaccine

As of Jan. 6, 2021, we have the participants needed to ensure the successful clinical trial of this COVID-19 vaccine. Thank you for your interest!


Help Us Create a COVID-19 Vaccine That Works for Everyone

Since the end of November, Tryon Medical Partners (TMP) and Javara Research have been active participants in the ENSEMBLE Study to research the efficacy of a COVID-19 vaccine created by Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson. More than 36,000 patients have enrolled in this trial across the United States, and TMP has contributed nearly 150 patients, including some of our own physicians and team partners.

TMP is committed to public health, and the inclusion of diverse groups is important for ensuring vaccines work in every population. 

If you have Black, Latinx, American Indian or Asian heritage, please consider participating in the ENSEMBLE Study to help us create a COVID-19 vaccine that works for everyone. Please spread the word to your family and friends – you don’t have to be a Tryon Medical Partners patient to help us in this fight.

ENSEMBLE vaccine trial participants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older
  • In good or stable health (you may have underlying medical conditions, if your symptoms and signs are stable and well-controlled) 

Qualified participants may receive study-related medical care and the investigational vaccine or placebo at no cost. Qualified participants will also be reimbursed for reasonable trial-related travel expenses to and from study visits. The study will not pay for other medical care or current medication(s) needed to support your daily healthcare routine. Clinical trials at Tryon Medical Partners may offer compensation for your time and if needed, transportation to and from clinic visits can be provided at no cost to you.
