Course Summary

A new coronavirus known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is responsible for the appearance of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which has become a global pandemic. This positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus is related to the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) that appeared in 2002 and 2012, respectively. Medical scientists around the world have focused their research efforts on developing treatments and vaccines to slow the spread and impact of COVID-19. Out of these efforts, three vaccines developed by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) were authorized by the United States Food and Drug Administration for emergency use for the prevention of COVID-19. These vaccines have different handling and administration requirements that health clinicians must know and understand to promote their efficient and proper use. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published guidelines for COVID-19 vaccine storage and handling, as well as public information for health clinicians and recipients of the vaccine relative to safety and the reporting of any adverse side effects from these vaccines.
