Teams of scientists around the world are racing for development of safe and effective vaccines to halt the transmission of SARS-Cov-2 (COVID-19; the WHO nomenclature [Coronavirus disease 2019]). Currently, there are about 165 COVID-19 vaccine candidates, 26 clinical trials and 6 phase 3-4 trials (source: WHO).
