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

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