The most important thing for any coronavirus vaccine is that it is safe and effective. Six vaccine candidates have already entered Phase I clinical trials in humans, which are designed to test if the vaccines are safe and can trigger an immune response, not whether they are effective in preventing the disease.

Yes, you can still get COVID-19 after getting the vaccine. In fact, we’re sometimes seeing people pop up with reinfections. In the majority of cases, these are people who are being screened asymptomatically and just happen to be positive for the virus, or who show mild symptoms of the virus.

For those pinning their hopes on a COVID-19 vaccine to return life to normal, an Australian expert in vaccine development has a reality check — it probably won't happen soon. The reality is that this particular coronavirus is posing challenges that scientists haven't dealt with before, according to Ian Frazer from the University of Queensland.
