Is there a vaccine for the COVID-19?
As of mid-January 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) approved one vaccine for COVID-19. Some countries have also approved vaccines. Many other vaccines are undergoing testing and are at different stages of the WHO approval process. For a vaccine to be approved by the WHO, it must be carefully reviewed for quality, safety, and effectiveness.
Several countries have allowed the use of certain vaccines in their country that may not yet have been approved by the WHO. Approved vaccines are made available according to agreements with the manufacturers, and local policies. Contact your county’s Ministry of Health to know which vaccines are approved and legally available in your country. More information about COVID-19 vaccines is available on the WHO website.
