The faster Omicron spreads, the more opportunities there are for the virus to mutate. COVID-19 vaccines continue to protect against serious illness, hospitalization + death. Ending the global pandemic depends on ending global vaccine inequity.

OMICRON SPECIFIC VACCINE: The study will evaluate the vaccine for safety, tolerability and the level of immune response, as both a primary series and a booster dose, in up to 1,420 healthy adults ages 18 to 55.
