Biological: DelNS1-nCoV-RBD LAIV

Placebo Comparator: Reference Product
Matching placebo, 2 doses 4 weeks apart, intranasal administration
Biological: Matching placebo
0.9% NaCl solution




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The cumulative incidence of reactogenicity for all the subjects received at least 1 dose of investigational medicinal product (IMP), regardless of whether the subject withdrew early, delayed/missed the second dose or received any antipyretic. [ Time Frame: For a 14-day period after each vaccination ]
    Reactogenicity: Occurrence of solicited local events (nasal irritation, sneezing, nasal congestion, cough, sore throat, change in smell, change in taste, change in vision and eye pain) and solicited systemic events (fever, headache, malaise, myalgia, joint pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, chills and sweating)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The seroconversion rate for serum RBD-specific binding antibodies for all the subjects received 2 doses of IMP, excluding subjects who missed the second dose, received any COVID-19 vaccine other than the IMPs or had a post-dose COVID-19 infection. [ Time Frame: At 28 days after the second vaccination ]
    Seroconversion rate, which is defined as the percentage of subjects in each cohort who (i) have antibody titre < LOD (limit of detection) or LLOQ (lower limit of quantification) at baseline and post-vaccination antibody titres of ≥ 40; or (ii) have at least a 4-fold increase in post-vaccination antibody titres in subjects with pre-existing baseline antibody titres.
