The COVID-19 pandemic has paralyzed the world, however with the advent of registered vaccines, a silver lining is on the horizon. These novel vaccines are, however, based on novel techniques, which do not yet have the full experience package of classical vaccines. On the other hand, the use of virus-like particles (VLPs) is one such classical vaccine approach. In this Special Issue of Vaccines, we would like to highlight the various efforts made and techniques used in the development of virus-like particle (VLP)-based COVID-19 vaccines. We would like to cover all aspects of vaccine development, from vaccine design to vaccine production, as well as preclinical and clinical efficacy. This Special Issue will highlight the power of the classical VLP-based approach und underline the importance that such avenues are still pursued to back up the vaccines currently undergoing registration.
