Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent experience of the SARS-COV-2 pandemic and the universal mass vaccination carried out to fight against this emergency is an important lesson for vaccinologists.

Vaccines against SARS-COV-2 were prepared in 8 months, and a large amount of the information for the safety, long-term immunogenicity, and effectiveness of these vaccines was from post-marketing studies.

This indicates that research on vaccines should not and cannot stop after marketing authorization, as an important portion of evidence actually comes from post-marketing and phase IV studies.

We welcome contributions including original research articles as well as field reviews relating to this research topic.

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19) a global pandemic on 11 March 2020. The emergence of the reliability of vaccines, the fear of possible vaccination-related side effects, and mass-media information created situations in which families and even health professionals developed hesitations regarding the need for vaccines, with a consequent decrease in vaccination coverage. This study discusses ethical issues and responsibility for the possible side effects of SARS-CoV-2 vaccination raised by vaccination policies. Full article
