- Biology, MedicineVaccines
The factors associated with the acceptability of SARS-CoV-2 vaccination are dissected, describing the possible strategies that gastroenterologist should adopt to reach the highest rate of vaccinations in IBD patients.
Evaluation of Side Effects Associated with COVID-19 Vaccines in Saudi Arabia
Side effects that are reported post Oxford-AstraZeneca and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines among study participants are not different from those that were reported in the clinical trials, indicating safe profiles for both vaccines.
Conscience and Vaccines: Lessons from Babylon 5 and COVID-19
- MedicineThe New bioethics : a multidisciplinary journal of biotechnology and the body
Some aspects of the COVID-19 vaccines' development and roll-out are discussed, demonstrating that people (be it patients or clinicians) might object to some vaccines due to reasonable ethics and safety-based concerns rather than due to an anti-vaxxer mind-set.
COVID-19 vaccine: Potential candidates, achievements, and challenges
Efficacy, rapid mass production, and long-term immunity as well as acceptance of vaccination by society are the main challenges in developing a safe vaccine against CO VID-19 despite the fact that some vaccines have over 90% efficiency against COVID-19 and are useful in developing immunity.
Meet the Challenges of Mass Vaccination against COVID-19
Three guiding principles are proposed and cautionary perspectives on the mass vaccination against COVID-19 are shared to help shape policy-making and the implementation of themass vaccination.
How the clinical research community responded to the COVID-19 pandemic: an analysis of the COVID-19 clinical studies in ClinicalTrials.gov
- MedicineJAMIA open
Most COVID-19 clinical studies included both genders and older adults, however, risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension, and pregnancy were under-represented, likely skewing the population that was sampled.
Effectiveness of an Inactivated SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine in Chile
- MedicineThe New England journal of medicine
The results suggest that the inactivated SARS-CoV-2 vaccine effectively prevented Covid-19, including severe disease and death, a finding that is consistent with results of phase 2 trials of the vaccine.
