Why don’t we have a COVID-19 vaccine — yet?

What is a Vaccine?

This picture from the Well Come Collection (wellcomecollection.org) is titled “Hypodermic syringe, Record type, by Hawkins, London (A500633/1), together with bottle of diphtheria vaccine (A629753/1). Front three quarter view, dark grey background.”

How are vaccines produced?

In this 2019 photo, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientist uses a syringe to inject flu virus into fertilized chicken eggs, where they will grow and multiply. Viruses are then isolated from these eggs for use in a variety of additional laboratory tests [6].
