Since its outbreak in late 2019, SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) has set off unprecedented chaos worldwide: with millions of lives taken away, the highly mutable virus presents the world with great uncertainty. Countries across the globe raced to create vaccines as countermeasures, but vaccine acceptance varied country by country. Nearly three years into the pandemic, the development of COVID-19 vaccines is still evolving, and so do people’s trust in COVID-19 vaccines and related technologies. In addition, there are significant variations in regulatory policies for COVID-19 vaccines (e.g., requirements and distributions) at different levels, which may have left many vulnerable. We intend to dedicate this Special Issue to facilitating discussions that enfold efforts toward building vaccine confidence among people and shaping regulatory policies.
