Which COVID-19 Vaccines Are Available?
Scientists worldwide are working on innovative solutions to produce vaccines that can stop the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 betacoronavirus, which causes COVID-19 in people.
Since late 2019, about twenty COVID-19 vaccines have been launched to protect people globally, reported GAVI on September 8, 2021.
Furthermore, GAVI says there are now 114 vaccine candidates undergoing human clinical trials and 185 COVID-19 vaccine candidates in pre-clinical development.
These vaccines are trying to achieve the same thing, offer immunity to the coronavirus, and some might also be able to stop its transmission between people. They do so by stimulating an immune response to an antigen, a molecule found on the evolving coronavirus.

Moreover, Europe has five additional COVID-19 vaccines in the Medicinal Products for Human Use committee 'rolling review' process, which may soon become Authorized.
