About the candidate

As the SARS-CoV-2 virus continues to evolve, Novavax is evaluating a variant strain vaccine based on the Omicron (B.1.1.529) Variant of Concern (VOC).

In December 2021, Novavax began developing an Omicron-specific variant vaccine and within weeks we initiated GMP manufacturing. Novavax expects to begin clinical studies of this candidate in Q2 2022.
