A COVID19 vaccine is a vaccine designed to confer acquired immunity against the virus that causes coronavirus illness 2019 (COVID19), the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARSCoV2). Prior to the COVID19 pandemic, there was a well-established body of knowledge about the structure and function of coronaviruses that cause diseases like SARS and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). The development of multiple vaccine platforms was hastened as a result of this knowledge in early 2020.
SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations were developed with the goal of preventing symptomatic, frequently severe sickness. SARS-CoV-2 genetic sequence data was exchanged through GISAID on January 10, 2020, and the global pharmaceutical sector declared a strong commitment to address COVID-19 on March 19, 2020. COVID-19 vaccinations have been largely credited with lowering the spread, severity, and death caused by the virus.
Many countries have devised staggered distribution programs that prioritize people who are most at risk of difficulties, such as the elderly, as well as those who are most at risk of exposure and transmission, such as healthcare personnel. Single-dose interim immunization is being considered in order to reach as many individuals as feasible until vaccine availability increases.
Anti-vaccination campaigners and others have disseminated a number of baseless conspiracy theories based on misinterpreted science, religion, and other reasons in a number of nations. Overblown claims concerning side effects, a myth about COVID-19 being distributed by 5G, misrepresentations about how the immune system functions, and when and how COVID-19 vaccines are created have proliferated among the general public, making them anti-vaccine.
As a result, governments and private organizations around the world have implemented steps to induce vaccination, such as lotteries, mandates, and free admission to events, which has led to more disinformation about the legality and effectiveness of these efforts.
