Description of intervention(s) / exposure
mRNA/LNP COVID-19 Booster Vaccine (HN-0001)
This study will evaluate a single-dose of 30 mcg HN-0001 or 30 mcg of a comparator vaccine (COMIRNATY Omicron XBB.1.5; raxtozinameran, Pfizer), administered by intramuscular injection, in previously vaccinated healthy adults.

A suitably qualified member of the research team will administer the injection and all participants will be followed up for 180 days after the vaccination. Safety will be assessed after the dosing of 2 participants before dosing further participants.

Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
Participants are eligible for enrolment in the study only if all the following criteria are met at the time of screening:
1. Healthy male or female between the ages of 18 and 65 years (inclusive) at the time of screening. Healthy status will be determined by the Investigator based on the medical history, clinical laboratory results, vital sign and electrocardiogram measurements, and physical examination at screening.
2. Participants willing and able to give personal signed informed consent and comply with all scheduled visits, vaccination plan, laboratory tests, lifestyle considerations, and other study procedures, including storage of blood samples for secondary use in research.
3. Has received at least one vaccination against COVID-19 (most recent dose was received >180 days prior).
4. Negative for SARS-CoV-2 infection as determined by PCR test at screening (visit 1) and rapid antigen test on Day 1 (first-dose/baseline).
5. Screening laboratory values must be within the laboratory reference ranges or meets the definition of a less than or equal to Grade 1 abnormality on the toxicity scale and deemed not clinically significant by the Investigator. The prothrombin time, fibrinogen, and activated partial thromboembolism (aPPT) must be in the reference range.
6. Females must not be pregnant or lactating, or trying to become pregnant as demonstrated by either one of the following A or B:
A. Not of child bearing potential: surgically sterile (at least six weeks post bilateral salpingectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, or hysterectomy); or post-menopausal (history of >12 consecutive months without menses prior to Day 1 in the absence of other pathologic or physiologic causes and confirmed by follicle stimulating hormone [FSH] level >40 mIU/mL.
OR
B. Women of childbearing potential who are not planning to be pregnant and/or lactating from screening until at least 30 days after vaccination and who meet all of criteria i-iii:
(i). Negative serum pregnancy test at the screening visit, and negative serum or urine pregnancy test at baseline (Day 1).
(ii). Is not lactating.
(iii). Using ne of the following highly effecting methods of contraception:
- Combine oestrogen and progesterone, or progesterone-only hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation (e.g.: implants, pills, patches) initiated >30 days prior to study Day 1/baseline.
- Intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS) inserted >30 days prior to study Day 1/baseline.
- Vasectomised partner (the vasectomised partner should have had the procedure at least 6 months prior to Day 1/baseline and be the sole partner for that subject.
For male participants that have not had a vasectomy (at least 6 months prior to Day 1/baseline), they must agree to use either a barrier method of contraception from the time of vaccination until at least 90 days after vaccination. Note: female partners (that are of childbearing potential) of male participants (that have not had a vasectomy) should use one of the effective contraceptive methods (e.g.: hormonal contraception, IUD, IUS, or barrier type). Also, male participants must not donate sperm for the duration of 90 days after vaccination.
Note: Contraception requirements do not apply for participants in an exclusively same-sex relationship.

2. Has had a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection within the 6 months before vaccine administration.
3. Has an acute illness, as determine by the site PI or delegate, with or without fever (temperature >38 degrees Centigrade [100 degrees Fahrenheit]) 48 hours prior to vaccination.
4. Has a history of hypersensitivity or severe allergic reaction to any previous licensed or unlicensed vaccines or component thereof.
5. Received immunoglobulins and/or any blood or blood products within the 6 months before vaccine administration.
6. Has any blood dyscrasia or any significant disorder or coagulation.
7. Has any abnormality or permanent body art (e.g.: tattoo) that would interfere with the ability to observe local reactions at the injection site (deltoid region).
8. Received or plans to receive any licensed vaccine within 4 weeks or after vaccination.
9. Receipt of any other SARS-CoV-2 or other experimental COVID vaccine within 180 days before vaccination or any planned receipt during the study duration.

Purpose of the study
Prevention
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Subjects will be enrolled within the study electronic data capture (EDC) and treatment will be allocated within the EDC using a randomisation schedule uploaded to the randomisation module of the EDC.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
The randomisation sequence will be generated programmatically by an unblinded statistician using SAS software and uploaded into the EDC.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of this study is to assess safety, reactogenicity (reactions that occur to the body soon after vaccination), and immunogenicity (the ability of a vaccine to provoke an immune reaction in the body) of a COVID-19 vaccine, HN-0001. The HN-0001 vaccine will be administered via intramuscular injection. This study will be conducted in healthy men or women, 18-65 years of age.

This study will compare effects seen in participants receiving the study drug at the moderate dose (30mcg) with effects seen in participants who receive an equivalent dose of the comparator COMIRNATY Omicron XBB.1.5 vaccine. 20 participants will be enrolled in the trial.
