The ongoing outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has raised a grave concern and a severe global health burden. Since no effective drugs have been approved for satisfactory prevention and treatment, the development of COVID-19 vaccines has attracted global attention. To date, a large number of COVID-19 vaccines are being rapidly developed worldwide, with thirteen candidates in Phase 3 trials, 52 tested in clinical trials, and 162 in preclinical evaluation. Here, we summarize the latest progress of all 13 COVID-19 vaccines in Phase 3 trails. Furthermore, some vaccines have received approval or emergency use approvals. We focus on the potential issues related to vaccination including vaccine acceptance, vaccine promotion, and vaccine distribution.
