Use these resources to background yourself on COVID-19 vaccine development

Returning to a society where people can safely gather with friends, family and large crowds will take a combination of a vaccine and treatments to stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

The race to find a vaccine has spurred much media attention. As of mid-October, between 50 and 179 promising vaccine candidates were under study, with more than 50 having reached the human clinical trial stage.

Many of the studies and trials are taking place in the U.S. and are part of the White House’s Operation Warp Speed program. Many more are being conducted outside the country.

Here are some resources, expert sources and other tips to help you make sense of the COVID-19 vaccine race and report it responsibly.
