Special Issue "Immune Effectiveness of COVID-19 Vaccines"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2024 | Viewed by 4454
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a global health crisis, with devastating consequences for human lives and economies worldwide. The rapid development of vaccines against COVID-19 has been a crucial step in mitigating the impact of the pandemic.
Understanding the immune response to COVID-19 vaccines is crucial to ensure their effectiveness in preventing infection and reducing the spread of the virus, particularly in light of emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern. The knowledge of the immune response to the developed and under-developed vaccines can help to improve vaccine formulation in the future, as well as guide the most effective vaccination programs. This research area has significant implications for public health policy, including vaccine distribution and vaccine hesitancy.
This Special Issue article series provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of knowledge on the immune response to COVID-19 vaccines. The articles cover topics such as vaccine efficacy and safety, immune responses in specific populations, and the potential impact of emerging viral variants on vaccine effectiveness. By gathering the latest research in this area, this series aims to provide a valuable resource for scientists, clinicians, and policymakers in the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are pleased to invite you to submit your research to this Special Issue. Original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- The immune response to novel COVID-19 under development.
- Populational studies covering the immune response to COVID-19 vaccines.
- Long-term immune response to COVID-19 vaccination.
- Relation between immune response and COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness.
- Breakthrough infections in the COVID-19 vaccinated population.
- Study of cases covering COVID-19 immune response to vaccination and infection.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
