Detailed Description

This is a open label clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy, safety and immunogenicity of inactivated SARS-CoV-2 vaccines (Vero cell) developed by Beijing Institute of Biological Products Co., Ltd in healthy people aged 3-17 years old in comparison with healthy population aged 18 years old and above. Total of 1800 healthy volunteers aged 3 years old and above will be enrolled, of whom the subjects will be divided into two groups, 3-17 years old group and 18 years old and above group with each consisting of 900 volunteers. The 3-17 years old group was further divided into three subgroups: 3-6 years old, 7-12 years old and 13-17 years old, with 300 volunteers in each subgroup. 2 doses of vaccines will be injected into the deltoid muscle of either upper arm according to the immunization schedule of D0, D21 (+7 Days). Based on interim analysis'results of the booster dose administered to adults aged 18 years old and above, a booster dose might be introduced.

    • 0.5 mL per dose, containing 6.5U inactivated SARS-CoV-2 antigen

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: Aged 3-6 years old
    • 300 subjects receive 2 dose according to the immunization schedule of D0, D21 (+7 Days). A booster dose might be introduced.
  • Experimental: Aged 7-12 years old
    • 300 subjects receive 2 dose according to the immunization schedule of D0, D21 (+7 Days). A booster dose might be introduced.
  • Experimental: Aged 13-17 years old
    • 300 subjects receive 2 dose according to the immunization schedule of D0, D21 (+7 Days). A booster dose might be introduced.
  • Active Comparator: Aged ≥18 years old
    • 300 subjects receive 2 dose according to the immunization schedule of D0, D21 (+7 Days). A booster dose might be introduced.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

    • Time Frame: From the beginning of the vaccination to 6 months after the full course immunization
    • All SAEs will be collected
  • The four-fold increase rate of anti-SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing antibody
    • Time Frame: 28 days after booster dose of immunization
    • ≥4 fold increase from baseline
  • The Geometric Mean Titer (GMT) of anti-SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing antibody
    • Time Frame: 28 days after booster dose of immunization
    • Neutralizing antibody assay will be performed using the Microcytopathic assay
  • The distribution of neutralizing antibody titer
    • Time Frame: 28 days after 2 dose of immunization and booster dose
    • The proportions of neutralizing antibody titer
