Zoomer | December 6th, 2017

People who are taking antibiotics or are being treated at a hospital or health care facility have an increased chance of getting sick due to C. difficile. C. difficile can cause frequent diarrhea, abdominal pain, and inflammation of the colon which, when severe, can be life threatening.

  • Have you had at least 2 visits to the emergency room, or had a hospitalization of at least 2 nights in the last 12 months? or
  • Do you have a planned surgery that will require a hospital stay of 2 nights or more? or
  • Have you been to the doctor more than 10 times in the last year? or
  • Are you a resident in a nursing facility? or
  • Have you received oral or injectable antibiotics at any time in the last 12 weeks?

If you are at least 50 years of age and answered YES to any of the questions above, you may be eligible to participate in a study being done to evaluate the effectiveness of an investigational vaccine for reducing the chance of getting C. difficile.
