A Phase 2/3, Three-Part, Open-Label, Dose-Escalation, Age De-escalation and Randomized, Observer-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Expansion Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Reactogenicity, and Effectiveness of mRNA-1273 SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine in Healthy Children 6 Months to Less Than 12 Years of Age


This is a Phase 2/3, 3-part, open-label, dose-escalation, age de-escalation, randomized, observer-blind, placebo-controlled, expansion study intended to infer the effectiveness of mRNA-1273 in children aged 6 months to less than 12 years.
