Altimmune’s AdCOVID is a single-dose intranasal vaccine that holds the potential to be highly effective.

It was noted that the FDA’s clinical hold wasn’t related to concerns about the safety or efficacy of the company’s experimental vaccine; the FDA made requests for trial protocol modifications and manufacturing data.
