Scientific researchers therefore are racing at an unprecedented pace to develop a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2. The importance of vaccines is two-fold: .. Read more they prevent disease in the individual receiving the inoculation and the best vaccines are also able to block a pathogen’s transmission from person to person. Academia, biotechnology, and government have swiftly mobilized to develop candidate vaccines for SARS-CoV-2. The field of vaccinology has demonstrated significant innovation in harnessing both traditional vaccine techniques and cutting-edge/not-yet-proven strategies as they seek to build an effective vaccine for SARS-CoV-2. The sheer number of groups developing a vaccine, the diversity of candidate vaccines being explored, the range of technology platforms, and the enormous financial investment into these activities are all historic and will hopefully lead to one or more efficacious licensed vaccines in the near future. While there is much promise that this will occur, critical open questions and hurdles remain.
