Brief Summary:

Objectives To assess the reactogenicity, measure the adaptive immune responses and track the long-term immune memory in healthy children and adults as well as pediatric patients receiving the COVID-19 vaccines-BNT162b2, CoronaVac-chosen by the Hong Kong Government; to compare the reactogenicity and immunogenicity across the vaccines used for these children and adults.

Hypothesis to be tested The safety profile and the magnitude and durability of immune responses to the COVID-19 vaccines in children are non-inferior to those in adults.

Design and subjects A single-site, comparative nonrandomised clinical trial for 450 healthy individuals or patients under 18 years old and one or both healthy parents and unrelated adults to receive one of COVID-19 vaccines by intramuscular injection (and intradermal injection)

Instruments Mobile app for subjects to record adverse effects, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, plaque reduction neutralization assay, luciferase immunoprecipitation system assay and flow cytometry.

Interventions BNT162b2 and CoronaVac, by intramuscular or intradermal route

Main outcome measures Types and frequencies of adverse effects within 7 days, and changes and peaks of antibody levels and antigen-specific memory T cell responses for 3 years.

    Percentage of occurrence, types, duration and severity of adverse reactions occurring within 7 days

  2. Binding antibody response [ Time Frame: 1 month post-dose 1, and 1, 6, 18, and 36 months post-dose 3 (and 2 weeks after dose 4) ]
    Geometric mean levels of SARS-CoV2 S and S-RBD-specific binding antibody and related markers as determined by Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay

  3. Neutralizing antibody response [ Time Frame: 1 month post-dose 1, and 1, 6, 18, and 36 months post-dose 3 (and 2 weeks after dose 4) ]
    Geometric mean levels and geometric mean fold rise of SARS-CoV2 neutralizing antibodies as determined by plaque reduction neutralization assay and surrogate assays

  4. T cell response [ Time Frame: 1 month post-dose 1, and 1, 6, 18, and 36 months post-dose 3 (and 2 weeks after dose 4) ]
    Geometric mean percentage of CD4 and CD8 T cells specific to SARS-CoV2 S (and N and M) protein


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Vaccine breakthrough [ Time Frame: Throughout the study period, until 36 months post-dose 3/4 ]
    Incidence of COVID-19 in participants throughout study period as self-reported or as determined by Luciferase Immunoprecipitation Systems assay/ELISA

  2. Adverse events [ Time Frame: Throughout the study period, until 36 months post-dose 3/4 ]
    Percentage of occurrence, types, duration and severity of adverse events and severe adverse events throughout study period

  3. Binding anti-N antibody response [ Time Frame: 1 month post-dose 1, and 1, 6, 18, and 36 months post-dose 3 (and 2 weeks after dose 4) ]
    Geometric mean levels and geometric mean fold rise of SARS-CoV2 N-specific binding antibody as determined by Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay in Arm C participants receiving CoronaVac
