BISAC: MED044000

In recent months, the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has spread globally, with the United States now reporting the highest number of cases of any country in the world. Currently, there are few treatment options available to lessen the health impact of the disease and no vaccines or other prophylactic treatments to curb the spread of the virus. Researchers and product developers are testing numerous types of vaccines—both in the laboratory and in some early-stage testing in humans. This book answers frequently asked questions about current efforts related to research and development of vaccines, their regulation, and related policy issues.
