AFTER THE VACCINATION IS BEFORE THE VACCINATION - HOW WE MAINTAIN THE UPPER HAND ON SARS-COV-2
Abstract :

Vaccines have been a cornerstone of global public health and have resulted in the control and even extinction of many deadly diseases in humans and animals. Vaccines have saved countless lives, and our modern and highly interconnected world is unthinkable without their protection. We will discuss the different types of vaccines and how those have been prudently employed as recent as during the current pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2. Given that the world will have to live with the virus and the many variants that are discovered at ever increasing speed, vaccine development cannot stop. We will present the development of rationally engineered SARS-CoV-2 vaccines that are based on a modified live virus platform and has unprecedented efficacy against all current variants, is exquisitely safe, and is easy to produce and store. We shall provide a rational path forward that will allow us to keep this novel virus at bay.
