Brief Summary:
The mRNA-1273 vaccine is being developed to prevent COVID-19, the disease resulting from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) infection. The study is designed to primarily evaluate the safety and reactogenicity of a single dose level of mRNA-1273 vaccine administered in 2 doses 28 days apart to an adolescent population. The study will also evaluate the safety of an optional mRNA-1273 single dose level booster dose (BD).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
SARS-CoV-2 Biological: mRNA-1273 Biological: Placebo Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 2/3 study, with Part 1A (Blinded Phase), Part 1B (Open-label Observational Phase), Part 1C (Booster Dose (BD) Phase) which consists of Part 1C-1 and Part 1C-2 and Part 2 (Open-Label). Participants in Part 1A are blinded to their treatment assignment, with participants receiving either 2 active mRNA-1273 vaccine doses or placebo. Part 1B of the study is designed to offer participants whose age group becomes Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) eligible to be unblinded so that participants who received placebo in Part 1A can request 2 doses of open-label mRNA-1273 vaccine. Part 1C-1 of the study will offer participants in Part 1A and Part 1B who are at least 5 months from the last dose, the option to request a homologous BD of mRNA-1273. Part 1C-2 is designed to provide a heterologous BD of mRNA-1273 to eligible participants who completed primary COVID-19 vaccination series with a non-Moderna vaccine under EUA and are at least 3 months from the last dose. Part 2 is an open-label design. Participants will receive 2 doses of mRNA-1273 SARS-CoV-2 vaccine and a BD.
