Novavax’ COVID-19 vaccine candidate, called NVX-CoV2373, is being developed for the prevention of COVID-19 disease. NVX-CoV2373 is made from the genetic sequence of SARS‑CoV‑2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease. It does not contain any live or inactivated virus, and cannot cause infection or COVID-19 disease.
The study vaccine was created using Novavax’ nanoparticle technology. The vaccine also contains the Company’s patented adjuvant called Matrix-MTM to boost the immune response and stimulate high levels of neutralizing antibodies.
The purpose of the Phase 3 study is to test the safety and efficacy of the vaccine. We want to understand how well the study vaccine works to prevent COVID-19 disease.
The study aims to enroll diverse populations, including those with other underlying health conditions, and in groups hardest hit by COVID-19 who are at high risk of developing severe disease. Visit ClinicalTrials.gov - NCT04611802 for additional details.
We need your help to keep learning and improving vaccines against COVID-19. We made history with safe and effective vaccines and we’ll keep working as long as there are people to protect, variants emerging, and research answers needed to end this pandemic. To participate:
