|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|SARS-CoV-2 Infection COVID-19 Maternal Immunization||Biological: BNT162b2 Other: Placebo||Phase 2 Phase 3|
The Phase 2 portion of the study will include approximately 200 pregnant women randomized 1:1 to receive BNT162b2 or placebo (saline) at 27 to 34 weeks' gestation. IRC review of safety data through 7 days after the second dose for all Phase 2 participants will be completed.
The Phase 3 portion of this study will assess the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of BNT162b2 among pregnant women enrolled at 24 to 34 weeks' gestation.
Maternal participants who originally received placebo will receive BNT162b2 at defined time points as part of the study.
