COVID-19 continues to spread around the world. One critical step in fighting this pandemic is learning about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine for all expectant mothers and their babies. Expectant moms who make the important and personal decision to volunteer for this study will help us answer this question. By choosing to volunteer, you will represent expectant moms like you—in age, race, ethnicity, and from communities like yours. You can help make a difference for other expectant moms and babies.
This study involves comparing an investigational (study) vaccine against a placebo (injection with no active ingredient). Participants who are given the placebo will have the opportunity to receive the study vaccine shortly after giving birth. Your participation in the study will last about 7-10 months.
Who Can Participate
- Healthy women over 18 years old who are pregnant and expecting one child
- Participants should be about 24-34 weeks (6-8 months) pregnant when they receive the study injection
- Participants should not have been previously diagnosed with COVID-19
