A COVID-19 VACCINE STUDY FOR CHILDREN

A research study conducted by Moderna is testing an investigational vaccine that may protect children who are between the ages of 6 months and 5 years from getting sick if they come into contact with SARS-COV-2, which causes COVID-19; also known as coronavirus.

TRIAL DETAILS

The primary purpose of the KidCOVE Study is to test the safety and effectiveness of the study vaccine, called mRNA-1273, that may protect children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years from getting sick if they come into contact with SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19. The study vaccine is being compared to a placebo, which is a saltwater solution that looks just like the study vaccine but contains no active vaccine.

A vaccine that prevents COVID-19 disease and SARS-CoV-2 transmission in children would be a crucial public health tool to help curb the pandemic.

Moderna is committed to researching a safe and effective vaccine that protects people of all ages and from all backgrounds against COVID-19.
