Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Inclusion criteria

  • Having understood the contents of the clinical study and ICF, and having signed the ICF.
  • Adults of both genders, 60 years of age and older.
  • Adults who can provide legal proof of identity.
  • SARS-COV-2 antibody screening negative at screening visit.

Exclusion criteria

  • Having a clear or suspected allergy to the test vaccine ingredients (including S protein, aluminum hydroxide adjuvant or CpG adjuvant), or have a history of severe allergy to any previous vaccine (such as acute allergic reaction, dyspnea or angioneurotic edema, etc.) (inquiries);

  • Having a history of SARS or MERS infection, or a previous infection of COVID-19 (previous nucleic acid or serum antibody test was positive) (inquiries);

  • Previous vaccination with SARS-CoV-2 vaccine(including SARS-CoV-2 vaccine for clinical trial) or received other vaccines within 28 days prior to the first dose of vaccine;

  • Abnormal skin (such as inflammation, induration, redness and swelling, large area scar, etc.) on both sides of the arm at the vaccination site and affecting the vaccination or safety observation(examination);

  • Axillary body temperature ≥37.3℃ before the first dose vaccination(examination);

  • Safety laboratory abnormal of any of the below:

    1. Liver function: ALT or ALT > 1.25*ULN
    2. Kidney function: serum creatinine (Cr) > ULN
    3. Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) ≥ 8.0%
  • Uncontrolled epilepsy or other progressive neurological diseases (inquiries);

  • Immunocompromised or have been diagnosed with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, lymphoma, leukemia, Systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease or other autoimmune diseases (inquiries);

  • Asplenia or functional asplenia (inquiries);

  • Having a history of coagulation disorder or abnormal coagulation function (e.g., lack of coagulation factors or thrombocytopenia) and assessed by investigators that are not suitable for the study (inquiry);

  • Having malignant tumor that not been cured clinically and been assessed by investigators as not suitable for the study (inquiry);

  • Having acute diseases or acute onset or poorly controlled chronic diseases(e.g. hypertension patients with blood pressure > 160/100mmHg, diabetes patients with ketoacidosis, etc.) within 14 days before the first dose vaccination and assessed by investigators as not suitable for the study (inquiry);

  • Use of systemic drugs that affect immune function within 6 months prior to the first dose vaccination for a long time (more than 14 consecutive days), such as immunosuppressant, cytotoxic drugs, inhaled corticosteroids (not including allergic rhinitis treated with corticosteroid spray), unless the investigators determines that the drug will not interfere with, limit, or obfuscate the evaluation prescribed by the protocol, or may endanger the safety of the subject (inquiry);

  • Treatment with whole blood, plasma or immunoglobulin within 3 months prior to the first dose(inquiry);

  • Any other factors that, in the investigator's judgment, are inappropriate for participation in the clinical study.
