Brief Summary:

This Phase 2/3 study is a multi-portion design to confirm that the chosen formulation and dosing regimen of CoVLP has an acceptable immunogenicity and safety profile.

The Phase 3 portion is an event-driven, randomized, observer blinded, placebo-controlled design that will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the CoVLP formulation compared to placebo.

Subjects will be followed for safety and immunogenicity for a period of 12 months after the last vaccination.

    • Study Populations #1 and #2: ≥ 18.5 and < 30 kg/m2;

  4. Subjects are considered by the Investigator to be reliable and likely to cooperate with the assessment procedures and be available for the duration of the study;
  5. Study Population #1: Subjects must be in good general health prior to study participation, with no clinically relevant abnormalities that could jeopardize subject safety or interfere with study assessments, as determined by medical history, physical examination, and vital signs. Investigator discretion will be permitted with this inclusion criterion;

    All regions except Canada: Note: Subjects with a pre-existing chronic disease will be allowed to participate if the disease is stable and, according to the Investigator's judgment that must be documented in the source documents, the condition is unlikely to confound the results of the study or pose additional risk to the subject by participating in the study. Stable disease is generally defined as no new onset or exacerbation of pre-existing chronic disease three months prior to vaccination. Based on the Investigator's judgment, a subject with more recent stabilization of a disease could also be eligible.

  6. Study Populations #1 and #3: Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test result at Screening (Visit 1 for the Phase 2 portion) and/or a negative urine pregnancy test result at Vaccination (Visit 2 for the Phase 2 portion; Visit 1 for the Phase 3 portion):

    Non-childbearing females are defined as:

    • Surgically-sterile (defined as bilateral tubal ligation, hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy performed more than one month prior to the first study vaccination); or
    • Post-menopausal (absence of menses for 12 consecutive months and age consistent with natural cessation of ovulation);
  7. Study Populations #1 and #3: Female subjects of childbearing potential must use an effective method of contraception for one month prior to vaccination (Visit 2) and agree to continue employing highly effective birth control measures for at least one month after the last study vaccination (or in the case of early termination, she must not plan to become pregnant for at least one month after her last study vaccination).

    The following relationship or methods of contraception are considered to be highly effective:

    • Combined (estrogen and progestogen containing) hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation:

    • Intravaginal;
    • Transdermal;
    • Progestogen-only hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation:
    • Oral;
    • Injectable;
    • Implantable;
    • Intra-uterine device with or without hormonal release;
    • Credible self-reported history of heterosexual vaginal intercourse abstinence prior to and for at least one month after the last study vaccination. Abstinent subjects who are ovulating should be asked what method(s) they would use should their circumstances change, and subjects without a well-defined plan should be excluded;
    • Female partner;
    • All regions except the US: Vasectomised partner, provided that this partner is the sole sexual partner of the study participant and that the vasectomised partner has received a medical assessment of the surgical success;
    • Bilateral tubal ligation.
  8. Study Population #2: Subjects must be non-institutionalized (e.g. not living in rehabilitation centres or old-age homes; living in an elderly community is acceptable) and have no acute or evolving medical problems prior to study participation and no clinically relevant abnormalities that could jeopardize subject safety or interfere with study assessments, as assessed by the Principal Investigator or sub-Investigator (thereafter referred as Investigator) and determined by medical history, physical examination, serology (only for the Phase 2 portion), clinical chemistry and haematology tests (only for the Phase 2 portion), urinalysis (only for the Phase 2 portion), and vital signs. Investigator discretion will be permitted with this inclusion criterion.

    All regions except Canada: Note: Subjects with a pre-existing chronic disease will be allowed to participate if the disease is stable and, according to the Investigator's judgment that must be documented in the source documents, the condition is unlikely to confound the results of the study or pose additional risk to the subject by participating in the study. Stable disease is generally defined as no new onset or exacerbation of pre-existing chronic disease three months prior to vaccination. Based on the Investigator's judgment and documented in source documentation, a subject with more recent stabilization of a disease could also be eligible;

  9. Study Population #3: Subjects must have one or more co-morbid conditions that puts them at higher risk for severe COVID-19 disease. These comorbidities include but are not limited to obesity, hypertension, type 1 or type 2 diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cardiovascular diseases, chronic kidney diseases, or be immunocompromised persons (e.g., treatment-controlled HIV infection, organ transplant recipients, or patients receiving cancer chemotherapy). Investigator discretion will be permitted with this inclusion criterion.

Exclusion criteria:

  1. Study Populations #1 and #2: According to the Investigator's opinion, significant acute or chronic, uncontrolled medical or neuropsychiatric illness.

    Acute disease is defined as presence of any moderate or severe acute illness with or without a fever within 48 hours prior to the Screening (Visit 1) and/or Vaccination visit (Visit 2). 'Uncontrolled' is defined as:

    • Requiring a new medical or surgical treatment during the three months prior to study vaccine administration;
    • Requiring any significant change in a chronic medication (i.e. drug, dose, frequency) during the three months prior to study vaccine administration due to uncontrolled symptoms or drug toxicity unless the innocuous nature of the medication change meets the criteria outlined in inclusion criterion no. 5 (Study Population #1) or no. 8 (Study Population #2) and is appropriately justified and documented by the Investigator.

    Investigator discretion is permitted with this exclusion criterion and must be carefully and fully documented in the source documents;

  13. For the Phase 2 portion of the study only: Use of prophylactic medications (e.g. antihistamines [H1 receptor antagonists], nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs [NSAIDs], systemic and topical glucocorticoids, non-opioid and opioid analgesics) within 24 hours prior to the Vaccination (Visit 2) to prevent or pre-empt symptoms due to vaccination;
  14. History of a serious allergic response to any of the constituents of CoVLP including AS03;
  15. History of a documented anaphylactic reactions to plants or plant components (including tobacco, fruits and nuts);
