China approves world-first inhaled COVID-19 vaccine

China has approved the world’s first inhaled COVID-19 vaccine, the vaccine maker CanSino Biologics (CanSinBIO) in Tianjin, China has announced.

The newly approved vaccine, named Convidecia Air, uses the same platform as the injectable COVID-19 vaccine by the same manufacturer — pieces of genetic material transported by a harmless adenovirus vector so the body can be trained against the virus. This vaccine, however, is inhaled through the mouth as a fine mist. China’s National Medical Products Administration has approved the vaccine for use as a booster.
