The World Health Organization (WHO) is currently tracking 170 teams of researchers around the world working on coronavirus vaccine development. It seems we receive an update on the progress of these vaccines weekly, and it is often confusing to understand where the world is in the overall process of developing a vaccine for the coronavirus.

Health experts previously stated the world would remain in a danger zone regarding the pandemic until scientists develop a vaccine. This Intelligence Brief offers an overview of how coronavirus vaccine development works, the different approaches around the world, where we are in the process, and the most significant concerns after the vaccine is available.

The objective of this Coronavirus Vaccine Development – Intelligence Brief is to provide you an overall perspective of what is unfolding in the global vaccine effort that will serve as a context for the various news stories that frequently arise on the topic.
