Randomization (investigator's opinion)
Randomized
Randomization description
This study uses both randomized and non-randomized arms. Block randomization method with variable block sizes of 4 and 6 in STATA will be used to create the random sequence in randomized arms. For the purpose of concealment, a unique code will be assigned to each intervention the participants receive, and all subjects will be identified with this code until the end of the study (concealment code).
Blinding (investigator's opinion)
Double blinded
Blinding description
In this study, the control group will receive the Sinopharm vaccine, which has different color, volume and packaging from Razi Cov Pars. Therefore, blinding will be performed by a person who will be responsible for preparing and inoculating the vaccine. This is the only person who will not be blind to the intervention given. Once the participant becomes eligible to receive the vaccine, a concealment/randomization code will be assigned to the volunteer and the vaccine type will be displayed on the screen of the vaccinator until the inoculation is confirmed. To protect the blinding in the participant, the syringe's cylinder will be covered to conceal the content of the syringe. Non-randomized arms that were added to the study later on, are not blind.
Placebo
Not used
Assignment
Parallel
Other design features
In addition to the randomized arms, two non-randomised and open label arms were added to the study. Participants will receive one of the Razi or Sinofarm vaccines by their own choice in these additional arms.
