Latest Development of COVID-19 Vaccines

COVID-19 took the world by storm when the human population was naive to SARS-CoV-2. To counteract, over 100 vaccine developers and manufacturers around the world joined the race of engineering the vaccine from scratch, and 6 of them, namely University of Oxford/AstraZeneca, Sinovac, Wuhan Institute of Biological Products/Sinopharm, Beijing Institute of Biological Products/Sinopharm, Moderna/NIAID, and BioNTech/Fosun Pharma/Pfizer, have successfully entered phase 3 clinical trials as of end of July 2020, projecting it to be the fastest vaccine ever been developed. Despite the current development speed, whether protection against SARS-CoV-2 will happen by widespread deployment of an effective vaccine or by repeated waves of infection over the next few years is yet to be unveiled in this journey of immunity acquisition.
