|COVID-19||Biological: AZD1222 Biological: rAd26-S||Phase 2|
This clinical study is a prospective, single-center, open-label, non-comparative, non-randomized single-arm study. It will enroll adult subjects aged ≥ 18 years old with absence of active COVID-19 infection to be verified by the results of reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR).
100 subjects meeting inclusion criteria are expected to be screened, 100 of them meeting eligibility criteria will receive one intramuscular injection of AZD1222 vaccine at 5×10^10 viral particles (nominal dose) and at least 90 subjects per one intramuscular injection of rAd26-S at (10±0.5) 1*10^11 viral particles with a 4-week interval on study days 1 and 29, respectively.
Duration of the subject participation in the study will be 6 months (180±10 days) from the day of administration of the first dose of AZD1222 vaccine. 10 visits are scheduled for each subject, 8 of them being obligatory personal visits to the study site.
Safety will be assessed for the duration of the study as follows:
- Solicited adverse events (AEs) (local and systemic) will be assessed for 7 days following each vaccination (ie, on days 1-7 after the first vaccination and on study days 29-35 to account for AEs after second vaccination) at the study visits and based on the results of Subject Diary review.
- Unsolicited AEs will be recorded within 29 days after administration of each dose of AZD1222/rAd26-S vaccine (i.e. on days 1-29 and on days 29 to 57).
- Serious adverse events (SAEs) will be recorded from signing of the informed consent form through Day 180
- Adverse events of special interest (AESI) will be documented from the first vaccination until day 180.
Immunogenicity will also be assessed throughout the study and include serological assay of levels of antibodies specific for Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) antigen as well as level of seroconversion, tests for neutralising antibodies.
At least 100 subjects are expected to receive at least one dose of the study product in 1 study site on the territory of Republic Azerbaijan.

Any other relevant diseases, disorders or findings which may significantly increase the risk due to participation in this study, restrict the subject's participation in it or impair interpretation of the study data.
(Note: upon assessment of the subject for exclusion criterion No. 13, adverse events of special interest should be considered which are outlined in appendix F of the study protocol as these adverse events of special interest, particularly with no treatment or control, may pose a risk for the subject's safety. Restrict his/her participation in the study or impair interpretation of the study data. The investigator should be aware of the list of conditions given in Appendix E of the study protocol and take it into account. If any of these conditions are found in the subject, the Investigator will be asked to use his/her clinical judgement to decide on the subject's eligibility for the study. If a subject with conditions outlined in Appendix E of the study protocol is enrolled into the study, the Investigator will be asked to document the final justification for the enrollment in the site's medical document.)
