CONTRAINDICATION

Do not administer the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine to individuals with a known history of a severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to any component of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (see Full EUA Prescribing Information).

WARNINGS

Management of Acute Allergic Reactions

Appropriate medical treatment to manage immediate allergic reactions must be immediately available in the event an acute anaphylactic reaction occurs following administration of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

Monitor Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine recipients for the occurrence of immediate adverse reactions according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/managing-anaphylaxis.html).

Myocarditis and Pericarditis

Postmarketing data demonstrate increased risks of myocarditis and pericarditis, particularly within 7 days following the second dose. The observed risk is highest in males 18 through 24 years of age. Although some cases required intensive care support, available data from short-term follow-up suggest that most individuals have had resolution of symptoms with conservative management. Information is not yet available about potential long-term sequelae. The CDC has published considerations related to myocarditis and pericarditis after vaccination, including for vaccination of individuals with a history of myocarditis or pericarditis (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/myocarditis.html).

Syncope

Syncope (fainting) may occur in association with administration of injectable vaccines. Procedures should be in place to avoid injury from fainting.

Altered Immunocompetence

Immunocompromised persons, including individuals receiving immunosuppressant therapy, may have a diminished immune response to the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

Limitations of Vaccine Effectiveness

The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine may not protect all vaccine recipients.

Adverse Reactions

Adverse Reactions in Clinical Trials

Adverse reactions in individuals 6 months through 23 months of age following administration of the primary series included irritability/crying, pain at the injection site, sleepiness, loss of appetite, fever, swelling at the injection site, erythema at the injection site, and axillary (or groin) swelling/tenderness. (See Full EUA Prescribing Information)

Adverse reactions in individuals 24 months through 36 months of age following administration of the primary series included pain at the injection site, irritability/crying, sleepiness, loss of appetite, fever, erythema at the injection site, swelling at the injection site, and axillary (or groin) swelling/tenderness. (See Full EUA Prescribing Information)

Adverse reactions in individuals 37 months through 5 years of age following administration of the primary series included pain at the injection site, fatigue, headache, myalgia, fever, chills, nausea/vomiting, axillary (or groin) swelling/tenderness, arthralgia, erythema at the injection site, and swelling at the injection site. (See Full EUA Prescribing Information)

Adverse Reactions in Post-Authorization Experience

Anaphylaxis and other severe allergic reactions, myocarditis, pericarditis, and syncope have been reported following administration of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine outside of clinical trials.

Additional adverse reactions, some of which may be serious, may become apparent with more widespread use of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

USE WITH OTHER VACCINES

There is no information on the co-administration of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine with other vaccines.

INFORMATION TO PROVIDE TO VACCINE RECIPIENTS/CAREGIVERS

As the vaccination provider, you must communicate to the recipient or their caregiver, information consistent with the “Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers” (and provide a copy or direct the individual to the website www.modernatx.com/covid19vaccine-eua to obtain the Fact Sheet) prior to the individual receiving each dose of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, including:

FDA has authorized the emergency use of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, which is not an FDA-approved vaccine.

5
Vaccination providers administering SPIKEVAX (COVID-19 Vaccine, mRNA) must adhere to the same reporting requirements.

Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a vaccine cannot be directly compared with rates in the clinical trials of another vaccine and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

Overall, approximately 39,000 participants aged 6 months and older received at least one dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine in five clinical trials (NCT04283461, NCT04405076, NCT04470427, NCT04649151, and NCT04796896). In a sixth clinical trial (NCT04885907), 60 solid organ transplant recipients received a third dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

Study 1 (NCT04470427) is a Phase 3 randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blind clinical trial conducted in the United States involving 30,346 participants 18 years of age and older who received at least one dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine6 (n=15,184) or placebo (n=15,162). Study 3 (NCT04649151) is a Phase 2/3 randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blind, clinical trial conducted in the United States involving 3,726 participants 12 years through 17 years of age who received at least one dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (n=2,486) or placebo (n=1,240). Study 4 (NCT04796896) includes an ongoing Phase 2/3 randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blind clinical trial component conducted in the United States and Canada involving 10,390 participants 6 months through 11 years of age who received at least one dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (n=7,799) or placebo (n=2,591).

Individuals 6 Months Through 5 Years of Age

Safety data for Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine from the ongoing Phase 2/3 randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blind clinical trial conducted in the United States and Canada included data in 6,388 participants 6 months through 5 years of age who received at least one dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (n=4,792) or placebo (n=1,596) (Study 4). As of the data cutoff date of February 21, 2022, the median duration of blinded follow-up for safety for participants 6 months through 23 months was 68 days after Dose 2. For participants 2 years to 5 years, the median duration of blinded follow-up for safety was 71 days after Dose 2.

For participants 6 months through 23 months, 51.1% were male, 48.9% were female, 13.2% were Hispanic or Latino, 79.0% were White, 3.1% were African American, 4.9% were Asian, 0.2% were American Indian or Alaska Native, 0.0% were Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, 1.5% were other races, and 10.6% were Multiracial. For participants 2 years through 5 years, 50.8% were male, 49.2% were female, 14.2% were Hispanic or Latino, 76.5% were White, 4.5% were African American, 6.0% were Asian, 0.4% were American Indian or Alaska Native, 0.3% were Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, 1.5% were other races, and 10.4% were Multiracial. Demographic characteristics were similar among participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and those who received placebo.

Solicited Adverse Reactions

Local and systemic adverse reactions and use of antipyretic medication were solicited in an electronic diary for 7 days following each injection (i.e., day of vaccination and the next 6 days) among participants receiving Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and participants receiving placebo with at least 1 documented dose (for participants 6 through 23 months, vaccine=1,758, placebo=585; for participants 24 months to 36 months, vaccine=986, placebo=338; for participants 37 months to 5 years, vaccine=2,030, placebo=659). Events that persisted for more than 7 days were followed until resolution.

The reported number and percentage of the solicited local and systemic adverse reactions by dose in Study 4 participants 6 months through 23 months of age are presented in Table 1, participants 24 months through 36 months of age are presented in Table 2, and participants 37 months to 5 years are presented in Table 3.

Solicited local and systemic adverse reactions reported following administration of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine had a median duration of 2 to 3 days for participants 6 through 23 months years of age and 2 days for participants 2 through 5 years of age.

An assessment of reactogenicity among participants with evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection (immunologic or virologic evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection [defined as positive RT-PCR test and/or positive Elecsys immunoassay result at Day 1]) compared to those with no evidence of infection at baseline (negative RT-PCR test and negative Elecsys immunoassay result at Day 1) was conducted. In the 6 months through 23 months of age cohort, 6.1% of participants (vaccine=106, placebo=38) had evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection at baseline. In the 2 years through 5 years of age cohort, 8.6% of participants (vaccine=266, placebo=82) had evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection at baseline. In each age cohort, fever (temperature >38°C) was reported in a greater proportion of baseline SARS-CoV-2 positive vaccine participants compared to baseline SARS-CoV-2 negative vaccine participants. There were no notable differences in other reactogenicity events.

Unsolicited Adverse Events

Participants were monitored for unsolicited adverse events for up to 28 days following each dose and follow-up is ongoing. Serious adverse events and medically attended adverse events will be recorded for the entire study duration.

As of February 21, 2022, among participants 6 months through 23 months of age who had received at least 1 dose of vaccine or placebo (vaccine=1,761, placebo=589), unsolicited adverse events that occurred within 28 days following each vaccination were reported by 49.3% of participants (n=869) who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and 48.2% of participants (n=284) who received placebo. In these analyses, 83.1% of study participants 6 months through 23 months of age had at least 28 days of follow-up after Dose 2. Among participants 2 years through 5 years of age who had received at least 1 dose of vaccine or placebo (vaccine=3,031, placebo=1,007), unsolicited adverse events that occurred within 28 days following each vaccination were reported by 40.0% of participants (n=1,212) who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and 37.5% of participants (n=378) who received placebo. In these analyses, 89.3% of study participants 2 years through 5 years of age had at least 28 days of follow-up after Dose 2.

During the 28-day follow-up period following any dose, lymphadenopathy-related events were reported by 1.5% of vaccine recipients and 0.2% of placebo recipients who were 6 months through 23 months of age and 0.9% of vaccine recipients and <0.1% of placebo recipients who were 2 years through 5 years of age. These events included lymphadenopathy, injection-site lymphadenopathy, and vaccination-site lymphadenopathy which were plausibly related to vaccination. This imbalance is consistent with the imbalance observed for solicited axillary (or groin) swelling/tenderness in the injected limb.

During the 28-day follow-up period following any dose, hypersensitivity adverse events were reported in 3.9% of vaccine recipients and 5.3% of placebo recipients who were 6 months through 23 months of age and 3.5% of vaccine recipients and 2.5% of placebo recipients who were 2 years through 5 years of age. Hypersensitivity events in the vaccine group included injection site rash and injection site urticaria, which are likely related to vaccination. Delayed injection site reactions that began >7 days after vaccination were reported in 1.2% of vaccine recipients and no placebo recipients who were 6 months through 23 months of age and 1.4% of vaccine recipients and <0.1% of placebo recipients who were 2 years through 5 years of age. Delayed injection site reactions included pain, erythema, and swelling and are likely related to vaccination.

During the 28-day follow-up period following any dose, events of abdominal pain (including abdominal pain, abdominal pain upper, and abdominal discomfort) were reported by 0.7% of vaccine recipients and 0.4% of placebo recipients who were 2 years through 5 years of age. Currently available information is insufficient to determine a causal relationship with the vaccine.

There were no other notable patterns or numerical imbalances between treatment groups for specific categories of adverse events that would suggest a causal relationship to Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

Serious Adverse Events

As of February 21, 2022, serious adverse events were reported by 0.9% (n=15) of participants who received vaccine and 0.2% (n=1) of participants who received placebo who were 6 months through 23 months of age and 0.3% (n=9) of participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and 0.2% (n=2) of participants who received placebo who were 2 years through 5 years of age. In these analyses, 83.1% of study participants 6 months through 23 months of age had at least 28 days of follow-up after Dose 2, and the median follow-up time for all participants was 68 days after Dose 2. In these analyses, 89.3% of study participants 2 years through 5 years of age had at least 28 days of follow-up after Dose 2, and the median follow-up time for all participants was 71 days after Dose 2.

In participants 6 months through 23 months of age who received the vaccine, a 1-year-old female experienced serious adverse events of a Grade 3 fever 6 hours after Dose 1 and a febrile convulsion 1 day after Dose 1. These events were considered related to vaccination. In participants 2 years through 5 years of age who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, none of the events were considered related to vaccine.

Individuals 6 Years Through 11 Years of Age

Safety data for Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine from Study 4 included data in 4,002 participants 6 years through 11 years of age who received at least one dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (n=3,007) or placebo (n=995). As of the data cutoff date of November 10, 2021, the median duration of blinded follow-up for safety was 51 days after Dose 2, and 1,284 participants had been followed for at least 2 months after Dose 2 (vaccine=1,006, placebo=218).

Demographic characteristics in Study 4 were similar among participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and those who received placebo. Overall, 50.8% were male, 49.2% were female, 18.5% were Hispanic or Latino, 65.6% were White, 10.0% were African American, 9.9% were Asian, 0.4% were American Indian or Alaska Native, <0.1% were Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, 2.1% were other races, and 10.6% were Multiracial.

Unsolicited Adverse Events

Participants were monitored for unsolicited adverse events for up to 28 days following each dose. Serious adverse events and medically attended adverse events will be recorded for the entire study duration. As of November 10, 2021, among participants who had received at least 1 dose of vaccine or placebo (vaccine=3,007, placebo=995), unsolicited adverse events that occurred within 28 days following each vaccination were reported by 29.6% of participants (n=891) who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and 25.1% of participants (n=250) who received placebo. In these analyses, 98.6% of study participants had at least 28 days of follow-up after Dose 2.

During the 28-day follow-up period following any dose, lymphadenopathy-related events were reported by 1.8% of vaccine recipients and 0.6% of placebo recipients. These events included lymphadenopathy, lymph node pain, injection-site lymphadenopathy, and vaccination-site lymphadenopathy which were plausibly related to vaccination.

During the 28-day follow-up period following any dose, hypersensitivity adverse events were reported in 4.3% of vaccine recipients and 2.1% of placebo recipients. Hypersensitivity events in the vaccine group included injection site rash and injection site urticaria, which are likely related to vaccination. Delayed injection site reactions that began >7 days after vaccination were reported in 2.7% of vaccine recipients and in 0.2% of placebo recipients. Delayed injection site reactions included pain, erythema, and swelling and are likely related to vaccination.

During the 28-day follow-up period following any dose, events of abdominal pain (including abdominal pain, abdominal pain upper, and abdominal pain lower) were reported by 1.1% of vaccine recipients and 0.6% of placebo recipients. Currently available information is insufficient to determine a causal relationship with the vaccine.

There were no other notable patterns or numerical imbalances between treatment groups for specific categories of adverse events that would suggest a causal relationship to Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

Serious Adverse Events

As of November 10, 2021, serious adverse events were reported by 0.2% (n=6) of participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and 0.2% (n=2) participants who received placebo. None of the events in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine group were considered related to vaccine. In these analyses, 98.6% of study participants had at least 28 days of follow-up after Dose 2, and the median follow-up time for all participants was 51 days after Dose 2.

There were no notable patterns or imbalances between treatment groups for specific categories of serious adverse events that would suggest a causal relationship to Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

Additional Safety Analyses

Participants 6 years through 11 years in Study 4 started to enter an open-label, observational phase after November 1, 2021. A long-term safety analysis was conducted in participants 6 years through 11 years from Study 4 who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (n=3,007) with a cut-off date of February 21, 2022. In these analyses, the median duration of follow-up including both the blinded and open-label phases was 158 days after Dose 2. Through the cut-off date, there were no serious adverse events causally related to the vaccine.

Adolescents 12 Years Through 17 Years of Age

Safety data for Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine in adolescents were collected in an ongoing Phase 2/3 randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blind, clinical trial conducted in the United States involving 3,726 participants 12 years through 17 years of age who received at least one dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (n=2,486) or placebo (n=1,240) (Study 3, NCT04649151). Overall, 51.4% were male, 48.6% were female, 11.6% were Hispanic or Latino, 83.9% were White, 3.4% were African American, 5.9% were Asian, 0.5% were American Indian or Alaska Native, <0.1% were Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, 1.0% were other races, and 4.5% were Multiracial. Demographic characteristics were similar among participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and those who received placebo.

Unsolicited Adverse Events

Participants were monitored for unsolicited adverse events for up to 28 days following each dose. Serious adverse events and medically attended adverse events will be recorded for the entire study duration. As of May 8, 2021, among participants who had received at least 1 dose of vaccine or placebo (vaccine=2,486, placebo=1,240), unsolicited adverse events that occurred within 28 days following each vaccination were reported by 20.5% of participants (n=510) who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and 15.9% of participants (n=197) who received placebo. In these analyses, 97.3% of study participants had at least 28 days of follow-up after Dose 2.

During the 28-day follow-up period following any dose, lymphadenopathy-related events that were not necessarily captured in the 7-day e-diary were reported by 5.0% of vaccine recipients and 0.5% of placebo recipients. These events included lymphadenopathy, vaccination-site lymphadenopathy and injection-site lymphadenopathy which were plausibly related to vaccination.

During the 28-day follow-up period following any dose, hypersensitivity adverse events were reported in 1.8% of vaccine recipients and 0.6% of placebo recipients. Hypersensitivity events in the vaccine group included injection site rash and injection site urticaria, which are likely related to vaccination. Delayed injection site reactions that began >7 days after vaccination were reported in 0.9% of vaccine recipients and in no placebo recipients. Delayed injection site reactions included pain, erythema, and swelling and are likely related to vaccination.

There were no other notable patterns or numerical imbalances between treatment groups for specific categories of adverse events that would suggest a causal relationship to Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

Serious Adverse Events

As of May 8, 2021, serious adverse events were reported by 0.2% (n=6) of participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and 0.2% (n=2) of participants who received placebo. In these analyses, 97.3% of study participants had at least 28 days of follow-up after Dose 2, and the median follow-up time for all participants was 53 days after Dose 2.

There were no notable patterns or imbalances between treatment groups for specific categories of serious adverse events that would suggest a causal relationship to Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

Additional Safety Analyses

Study 3 participants started to enter an open-label, observational phase after May 10, 2021. A long-term safety analysis was conducted in participants from Study 3 who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (n=2,486) with a cut-off date of January 31, 2022. In these analyses, the median duration of follow-up including both the blinded and open-label phases was 312 days after Dose 2 and 95.6% of study participants have had at least 6 months of follow-up after Dose 2. Through the cut-off date, there were no serious adverse events causally related to the vaccine.

Adults 18 Years of Age and Older

The safety of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine was evaluated in an ongoing Phase 3 randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blind clinical trial conducted in the United States involving 30,346 participants 18 years of age and older who received at least one dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (n=15,184) or placebo (n=15,162) (Study 1, NCT04470427). Upon issuance of the Emergency Use Authorization (December 18, 2020) for Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, participants were unblinded in a phased manner over a period of months to offer placebo participants Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. The median duration of follow up for safety after the second injection during the blinded phase was 4 months. The median duration of follow up for safety after the second injection including both the blinded phase and the open-label phase was 6 months.

In Study 1, the median age of the population was 52 years (range 18-95); 22,826 (75.2%) participants were 18 to 64 years of age and 7,520 (24.8%) participants were 65 years of age and older. Overall, 52.6% of the participants were male, 47.4% were female, 20.5% were Hispanic or Latino, 79.2% were White, 10.2% were African American, 4.6% were Asian, 0.8% were American Indian or Alaska Native, 0.2% were Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, 2.0% were other races, and 2.1% were Multiracial. Demographic characteristics were similar between participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and those who received placebo.

Unsolicited Adverse Events

Participants were monitored for unsolicited adverse events for 28 days following each dose. Serious adverse events and medically attended adverse events will be recorded for the entire study duration (2 years). Among the 30,346 participants who had received at least 1 dose of vaccine (N=15,184) or placebo (N=15,162), unsolicited adverse events that occurred within 28 days following any vaccination were reported by 31.3% of participants (n=4,752) who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and 28.6% of participants (n=4,338) who received placebo.

During the 28-day follow-up period following any dose, lymphadenopathy-related events were reported by 1.7% of vaccine recipients and 0.8% of placebo recipients. These events included lymphadenopathy, lymphadenitis, lymph node pain, vaccination-site lymphadenopathy, injection-site lymphadenopathy, and axillary mass.

During the 7-day follow-up period of any vaccination, hypersensitivity events of injection site rash or injection site urticaria, likely related to vaccination, were reported by 6 participants in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine group and none in the placebo group. Delayed injection site reactions that began >7 days after vaccination were reported in 1.4% of vaccine recipients and 0.7% of placebo recipients. Delayed injection site reactions included pain, erythema, and swelling and are likely related to vaccination.

In the blinded portion of the study, there were 8 reports of facial paralysis (including Bell’s palsy) in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine group, and 3 in the placebo group. In the 28-day follow-up period there were two cases of facial paralysis in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine group, which occurred on 8 and 22 days, respectively, after vaccination, and one in the placebo group, which occurred 17 days after vaccination. Currently available information on facial paralysis is insufficient to determine a causal relationship with the vaccine.

In the blinded portion of the study, there were 50 reports of herpes zoster in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine group, and 23 in the placebo group. In the 28-day period after any vaccination, there were 22 cases of herpes zoster in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine group, and 15 in the placebo group. Currently available information on herpes zoster infection is insufficient to determine a causal relationship with the vaccine.

There were no other notable patterns or numerical imbalances between treatment groups for specific categories of adverse events (including other neurologic, neuro-inflammatory, and thrombotic events) that would suggest a causal relationship to Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

Serious Adverse Events

During the blinded phase of the study, serious adverse events were reported by 1.8% (n=268) of participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and 1.9% (n=292) of participants who received placebo.

There were three serious adverse events of angioedema/facial swelling in the vaccine group in recipients with a history of injection of dermatological fillers. The onset of swelling was reported 1-2 days after the second dose and was likely related to vaccination.

There were no other notable patterns or imbalances between treatment groups for specific categories of serious adverse events (including neurologic, neuro-inflammatory, and thrombotic events) that would suggest a causal relationship to Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

Pediatric Use

Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is authorized for use in individuals 6 months through 17 years of age. This authorization is based on safety and effectiveness data in this age group and adults.

Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is not authorized for use in individuals younger than 6 months of age.

Use in Immunocompromised Individuals

Safety and effectiveness of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine in individuals 6 months through 17 years of age with immunocompromise have been extrapolated from adult data. In an independent study (Hall VG, Ferreira VH, Ku T et al. Randomized Trial of a Third Dose of mRNA-1273 Vaccine in Transplant Recipients. N Engl J Med 2021 DOI: 10.1056/NEJMc2111462; NCT04885907), safety and effectiveness of a third primary series dose of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine have been evaluated in participants who received solid organ transplants. In this study, in 60 adult participants who had undergone various solid organ transplant procedures (heart, kidney, kidney-pancreas, liver, lung, pancreas) a median of 3.57 years previously (range 1.99-6.75 years) who received a third vaccine dose, the adverse event profile was similar to that after the second dose and no Grade 3 or Grade 4 events were reported. The administration of a third primary series vaccine dose appears to be only moderately effective in increasing antibody titers. Patients should be counseled to maintain physical precautions to help prevent COVID-19. In addition, close contacts of immunocompromised persons should be vaccinated, as appropriate for their health status.

Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Description

Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is provided as a white to off-white suspension for intramuscular injection.

Each 0.25 mL primary series dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine supplied in a multiple-dose vial with a dark blue cap and a label with a magenta border contains 25 mcg of nucleoside-modified messenger RNA (mRNA) encoding the pre-fusion stabilized Spike glycoprotein (S) of SARS-CoV-2 virus. Each 0.25 mL dose of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine supplied in a multiple-dose vial with a dark blue cap and a label with a magenta border contains the following ingredients: a total lipid content of 0.5 mg (SM-102, polyethylene glycol [PEG] 2000 dimyristoyl glycerol [DMG], cholesterol, and 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine [DSPC]), 0.13 mg tromethamine, 0.62 mg tromethamine hydrochloride, 0.011 mg acetic acid, 0.049 mg sodium acetate trihydrate, and 21.8 mg sucrose.

Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine does not contain a preservative.

The vial stoppers are not made with natural rubber latex.

Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine - Clinical Pharmacology

Mechanism of Action

The nucleoside-modified mRNA in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is formulated in lipid particles, which enable delivery of the nucleoside-modified mRNA into host cells to allow expression of the SARS-CoV-2 S antigen. The vaccine elicits an immune response to the S antigen, which protects against COVID-19.

CLINICAL TRIAL RESULTS AND SUPPORTING DATA FOR EUA

Efficacy of Two-Dose Primary Series in Participants 18 Years and Older

Study 1 is an ongoing Phase 3 randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blind clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine in participants 18 years of age and older in the United States (NCT04470427). Randomization was stratified by age and health risk: 18 to <65 years of age without comorbidities (not at risk for progression to severe COVID-19), 18 to <65 years of age with comorbidities (at risk for progression to severe COVID-19), and 65 years of age and older with or without comorbidities. Participants who were immunocompromised and those with a known history of SARS-CoV-2 infection were excluded from the study. Participants with no known history of SARS-CoV-2 infection but with positive laboratory results indicative of infection at study entry were included. The study allowed for the inclusion of participants with stable pre-existing medical conditions, defined as disease not requiring significant change in therapy or hospitalization for worsening disease during the 3 months before enrollment, as well as participants with stable human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. A total of 30,420 participants were randomized equally to receive 2 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine or saline placebo 1 month apart. Participants will be followed for efficacy and safety until 24 months after the second dose.

The primary efficacy analysis population (referred to as the Per-Protocol Set) included 28,207 participants who received two doses (at 0 and 1 month) of either Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (n=14,134) or placebo (n=14,073) and had a negative baseline SARS-CoV-2 status. In the Per-Protocol Set, 47.4% were female, 19.7% were Hispanic or Latino; 79.5% were White, 9.7% were African American, 4.6% were Asian, and 2.1% other races. The median age of participants was 53 years (range 18-95) and 25.3% of participants were 65 years of age and older. Of the study participants in the Per-Protocol Set, 18.5% were at increased risk of severe COVID-19 due to at least one pre-existing medical condition (chronic lung disease, significant cardiac disease, severe obesity, diabetes, liver disease, or HIV infection) regardless of age. Between participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and those who received placebo, there were no notable differences in demographics or pre-existing medical conditions.

Efficacy Against COVID-19

COVID-19 was defined based on the following criteria: The participant must have experienced at least two of the following systemic symptoms: fever (≥38ºC / ≥100.4°F), chills, myalgia, headache, sore throat, new olfactory and taste disorder(s); or the participant must have experienced at least one of the following respiratory signs/symptoms: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, or clinical or radiographical evidence of pneumonia; and the participant must have at least one NP swab, nasal swab, or saliva sample (or respiratory sample, if hospitalized) positive for SARS-CoV-2 by RT-PCR. COVID-19 cases were adjudicated by a Clinical Adjudication Committee.

The median length of follow-up for efficacy for participants in the study was 9 weeks post Dose 2. There were 11 COVID-19 cases in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine group and 185 cases in the placebo group, with a vaccine efficacy of 94.1% (95% confidence interval of 89.3% to 96.8%).

Severe COVID-19 was defined based on confirmed COVID-19 as per the primary efficacy endpoint case definition, plus any of the following: Clinical signs indicative of severe systemic illness, respiratory rate ≥30 per minute, heart rate ≥125 beats per minute, SpO2 ≤93% on room air at sea level or PaO2/FIO2 <300 mm Hg; or respiratory failure or ARDS (defined as needing high-flow oxygen, non-invasive or mechanical ventilation, or ECMO), evidence of shock (systolic blood pressure <90 mmHg, diastolic BP <60 mmHg or requiring vasopressors); or significant acute renal, hepatic, or neurologic dysfunction; or admission to an intensive care unit or death.

Among all participants in the Per-Protocol Set analysis, which included COVID-19 cases confirmed by an adjudication committee, no cases of severe COVID-19 were reported in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine group compared with 30 cases reported in the placebo group (incidence rate 9.138 per 1,000 person-years). One PCR-positive case of severe COVID-19 in a vaccine recipient was awaiting adjudication at the time of the analysis.

Effectiveness of Two-Dose Primary Series in Individuals 6 Months Through 5 Years of Age

Study 4 includes an ongoing Phase 2/3 randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blind, clinical trial component to evaluate the safety, reactogenicity, and effectiveness of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine in individuals ages 6 months through 5 years in the United States and Canada (NCT04796896). Participants with a known history of SARS-CoV-2 infection within 2 weeks of study vaccination were excluded from the study. A total of 6,403 participants were randomized 3:1 to receive 2 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine or saline placebo 1 month apart. Participants will be followed for occurrence of COVID-19 and safety until 1 year after the last dose.

Effectiveness in individuals 6 months through 5 years of age is based on a comparison of immune responses in this age group to adults 18 years through 25 years of age.

In Study 4, an analysis was conducted of SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing antibody concentrations and seroresponse rates 28 days after Dose 2 in a subset of individuals 6 months through 5 years of age in Study 4 and participants 18 years through 25 years of age in Study 1 who had no immunologic or virologic evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 at baseline. Noninferior immune responses as assessed by neutralizing antibody concentrations in arbitrary units (AU)/mL and seroresponse rates were demonstrated in a comparison of individuals 6 months through 23 months of age to participants 18 years through 25 years of age (Table 6) and 2 years through 5 years of age to participants 18 years through 25 years of age (Table 7).

A descriptive efficacy analysis evaluating confirmed COVID-19 cases accrued up to the data cutoff date February 21, 2022, was performed in 5,476 participants 6 months through 5 years of age who received two doses (at 0 and 1 month) of either Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine or placebo and had a negative baseline SARS-CoV-2 status (referred to as the Per-Protocol Set for Efficacy) (for participants 6 months through 23 months, vaccine=1,511, placebo=513; for participants 2 years through 5 years, vaccine=2,594, placebo=858). For participants 6 months through 23 months in the Per-Protocol Set for Efficacy, 51.2% were male, 48.8% were female, 12.7% were Hispanic or Latino; 78.9% were White, 3.1% were African American, 4.6% were Asian, 0.2% were American Indian or Alaska Native, 0.0% were Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, 1.8% were other races, and 10.7% were Multiracial. For participants 2 years through 5 years, 50.7% were male, 49.3% were female, 14.0% were Hispanic or Latino, 76.8% were White, 4.1% were African American, 6.1% were Asian, 0.4% were American Indian or Alaska Native, 0.3% were Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, 1.6% were other races, and 10.3% were Multiracial. Between participants who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and those who received placebo, there were no notable differences in demographics.

The median length of follow-up for efficacy post-Dose 2 was 68 days for participants 6 months through 23 months of age and 71 days for participants 2 years through 5 years of age.

Vaccine efficacy among individuals 6 months through 5 years in Study 4 was evaluated during the period when the B.1.1.529 (Omicron) variant was the predominant variant in circulation.

The efficacy information in individuals 6 months through 23 months of age and 2 years through 5 years of age are presented in Table 8 and Table 9, respectively.

Immunogenicity in Solid Organ Transplant Recipients

Immunogenicity of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine in children with immunocompromise has been extrapolated from adult data. An independent randomized-controlled study has been conducted in 120 adult participants who had undergone various solid organ transplant procedures (heart, kidney, kidney-pancreas, liver, lung, pancreas) a median of 3.57 years previously (range 1.99-6.75 years). A third primary series dose of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine was administered to 60 participants approximately 2 months after they had received a second dose; saline placebo was given to 60 individuals for comparison. Significant increases in levels of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies occurred four weeks after the third dose in 55.0% of participants in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine group (33 of 60) and 17.5% of participants in the placebo group (10 of 57).

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR CHILD GETS THIS VACCINE

WHAT IS COVID-19?

COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. This type of coronavirus has not been seen before. You can get COVID-19 through contact with another person who has the virus. It is predominantly a respiratory illness that can affect other organs. People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported, ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Symptoms may include: fever or chills; cough; shortness of breath; fatigue; muscle or body aches; headache; new loss of taste or smell; sore throat; congestion or runny nose; nausea or vomiting; diarrhea.

WHAT SHOULD YOU MENTION TO YOUR CHILD’S VACCINATION PROVIDER BEFORE YOUR CHILD GETS THE VACCINE?

Tell the vaccination provider about all of your child’s medical conditions, including if your child:

has any allergies
has had myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) or pericarditis (inflammation of the lining outside the heart)
has a fever
has a bleeding disorder or is on a blood thinner
is immunocompromised or is on a medicine that affects your child’s immune system
has received another COVID-19 vaccine
has ever fainted in association with an injection

WHO SHOULD NOT GET THE VACCINE?

Your child should not get the vaccine if your child:

had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose of this vaccine
had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient of this vaccine

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN THE VACCINE?

The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine contains the following ingredients: messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), lipids (SM-102, polyethylene glycol [PEG] 2000 dimyristoyl glycerol [DMG], cholesterol, and 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine [DSPC]), tromethamine, tromethamine hydrochloride, acetic acid, sodium acetate trihydrate, and sucrose.

HOW IS THE VACCINE GIVEN?

The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine will be given to your child as an injection into the muscle.

The vaccine is administered as a two-dose series, 1 month apart. A third primary series dose may be administered at least 1 month after the second dose to individuals who are determined to have certain kinds of immunocompromise.

HAS THE VACCINE BEEN USED BEFORE?

Millions of individuals 18 years of age and older have received the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine under EUA since December 18, 2020. In a clinical trial, approximately 5,000 individuals 6 months through 5 years of age have received at least 1 dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. In other clinical trials, approximately 4,000 individuals 6 years through 11 years of age and 30,000 individuals 12 years of age and older have received at least 1 dose of the vaccine.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE VACCINE?

The vaccine has been shown to prevent COVID-19. The duration of protection against COVID-19 is currently unknown.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THE VACCINE?

There is a remote chance that the vaccine could cause a severe allergic reaction. A severe allergic reaction would usually occur within a few minutes to one hour after getting a dose of the vaccine. For this reason, your child’s vaccination provider may ask your child to stay at the place where your child received the vaccine for monitoring after vaccination. Signs of a severe allergic reaction can include:

Difficulty breathing
Swelling of your face and throat
A fast heartbeat
A bad rash all over your body
Dizziness and weakness

Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the lining outside the heart) have occurred in some people who have received the vaccine. In most of these people, symptoms began within a few days following receipt of the second dose of the vaccine. The chance of having this occur is very low. You should seek medical attention right away if your child has any of the following symptoms after receiving the vaccine, particularly during the 2 weeks after your child receives a dose of the vaccine:

Chest pain
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Feelings of having a fast-beating, fluttering, or pounding heart
Fainting
Unusual and persistent irritability
Unusual and persistent poor feeding
Unusual and persistent fatigue or lack of energy
Persistent vomiting
Persistent pain in the abdomen
Unusual and persistent cool, pale skin

Side effects that have been reported in clinical trials with the vaccine include:

Injection site reactions: pain, tenderness and swelling of the lymph nodes in the same arm of the injection or in the groin, redness, and swelling (hardness)
General side effects: fatigue, headache, muscle pain, chills, nausea and vomiting, fever, joint pain, irritability/crying, sleepiness, and loss of appetite

Side effects that have been reported during post-authorization use of the vaccine include:

Severe allergic reactions
Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle)
Pericarditis (inflammation of the lining outside the heart)
Fainting in association with injection of the vaccine

These may not be all the possible side effects of the vaccine. Serious and unexpected side effects may occur. The possible side effects of the vaccine are still being studied in clinical trials.

WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT SIDE EFFECTS?

If your child experiences a severe allergic reaction, call 9-1-1, or go to the nearest hospital.

Call the vaccination provider or your child’s healthcare provider if your child has any side effects that bother your child or do not go away.

Report vaccine side effects to FDA/CDC Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The VAERS toll-free number is 1-800-822-7967 or report online to https://vaers.hhs.gov/reportevent.html. Please include “Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine EUA” in the first line of box #18 of the report form.

In addition, you can report side effects to ModernaTX, Inc. at 1-866-MODERNA (1-866-663-3762).

You may also be given an option to enroll in v-safe. V-safe is a voluntary smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to check in with people who have been vaccinated to identify potential side effects after COVID-19 vaccination. V-safe asks questions that help CDC monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. V-safe also provides second-dose reminders if needed and live telephone follow-up by CDC if participants report a significant health impact following COVID-19 vaccination. For more information on how to sign up, visit: www.cdc.gov/vsafe.

WHAT IF I DECIDE NOT TO HAVE MY CHILD GET THE Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine?

Under the EUA, there is an option to accept or refuse receiving the vaccine. Should you decide for your child not to receive it, it will not change your child's standard medical care.

ARE OTHER CHOICES AVAILABLE FOR PREVENTING COVID-19 BESIDES Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine?

Other vaccines to prevent COVID-19 may be available under Emergency Use Authorization.

CAN MY CHILD RECEIVE THE Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine AT THE SAME TIME AS OTHER VACCINES?

Data have not yet been submitted to FDA on administration of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine at the same time as other vaccines. If you are considering having your child receive the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine with other vaccines, discuss your options with your child’s healthcare provider.

WHAT IF MY CHILD IS IMMUNOCOMPROMISED?

If your child is immunocompromised, you may be given the option to have your child receive a third primary series dose of the vaccine. The third dose may still not provide full immunity to COVID-19 in people who are immunocompromised, and you should continue to have your child maintain physical precautions to help prevent COVID-19. In addition, your child’s close contacts should be vaccinated as appropriate.

WILL THE VACCINE GIVE MY CHILD COVID-19?

No. The vaccine does not contain SARS-CoV-2 and cannot give your child COVID-19.

KEEP YOUR CHILD’S VACCINATION CARD

When your child gets the first dose, you will get a vaccination card to show when to return for your child’s next dose(s) of the vaccine. Remember to bring the card when your child returns.

HOW CAN I LEARN MORE?

Ask the vaccination provider
Visit CDC at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
Visit FDA at https://www.fda.gov/emergency-preparedness-and-response/mcm-legal- regulatory-and-policy-framework/emergency-use-authorization
Contact your state or local public health department

WHERE WILL MY CHILD’S VACCINATION INFORMATION BE RECORDED?

The vaccination provider may include your child’s vaccination information in your state/local jurisdiction’s Immunization Information System (IIS) or other designated system. This will ensure that your child receives the same vaccine when your child returns for the second dose. For more information about IISs, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis/about.html.

CAN I BE CHARGED AN ADMINISTRATION FEE FOR RECEIPT OF THE COVID-19 VACCINE?

No. At this time, the provider cannot charge you for a vaccine dose and you cannot be charged an out-of-pocket vaccine administration fee or any other fee if only receiving a COVID-19 vaccination. However, vaccination providers may seek appropriate reimbursement from a program or plan that covers COVID-19 vaccine administration fees for the vaccine recipient (private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, HRSA COVID-19 Uninsured Program for non-insured recipients).

WHERE CAN I REPORT CASES OF SUSPECTED FRAUD?

Individuals becoming aware of any potential violations of the CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Program requirements are encouraged to report them to the Office of the Inspector General, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, at 1-800-HHS-TIPS or TIPS.HHS.GOV.

WHAT IS THE COUNTERMEASURES INJURY COMPENSATION PROGRAM?

The Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) is a federal program that may help pay for costs of medical care and other specific expenses of certain people who have been seriously injured by certain medicines or vaccines, including this vaccine. Generally, a claim must be submitted to the CICP within one (1) year from the date of receiving the vaccine. To learn more about this program, visit www.hrsa.gov/cicp/ or call 1-855-266-2427.

WHAT IS AN EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION (EUA)?

An EUA is a mechanism to facilitate the availability and use of medical products, including vaccines, during public health emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. An EUA is supported by a Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) declaration that circumstances exist to justify the emergency use of drugs and biological products during the COVID-19 pandemic. A product authorized for emergency use has not undergone the same type of review by FDA as an FDA approved product.

FDA may issue an EUA when certain criteria are met, which includes that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives. In addition, the FDA decision is based on the totality of the scientific evidence available showing that the product may be effective to prevent COVID-19 during the COVID-19 pandemic and that the known and potential benefits of the product outweigh the known and potential risks of the product. All of these criteria must be met to allow for the product to be used during the COVID-19 pandemic.

An EUA is in effect for the duration of the COVID-19 EUA declaration justifying emergency use of this product, unless terminated or revoked (after which the product may no longer be used).
