Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 3, randomized, observer-blinded study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of a single dose of a quadrivalent influenza modRNA vaccine compared to licensed inactivated influenza vaccine in healthy adults 18 years of age and older.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Influenza, Human Biological: Quadrivalent influenza modRNA vaccine Biological: Quadrivalent influenza vaccine Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 3, randomized, observer-blinded study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of a quadrivalent influenza modRNA vaccine (qIRV) encoding HA of 4 seasonally recommended strains (2 A strains and 2 B strains) compared to licensed quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIV) in healthy adults 18 years of age and older.

Participants may be enrolled in either the reactogenicity subset, immunogenicity subset, or both subsets. Efficacy will be assessed in this study through surveillance for influenza-like illness.
