About the Phase 2/3 Study  

The Phase 2/3 study is an event driven trial that will continue enrollment on a rolling basis, enroll up to 30,000 participants at more than 120 clinical investigational sites around the world, in non-pregnant adults 18-85 years old.  

The Phase 2/3 trial is designed as a 1:1 investigational vaccine candidate to placebo, randomized, observer-blinded study to obtain safety, immune response, and efficacy data needed for regulatory review. The trial’s primary endpoints will be prevention of COVID-19 in those who have not been infected by SARS-CoV-2 prior to immunization, and prevention of COVID-19 regardless of whether participants have previously been infected by SARS-CoV-2.  Secondary endpoints include prevention of severe COVID-19 in those groups.
