What you need to know about the Covid vaccines

Is there light at the end of the tunnel? Three different researchers have announced potential Covid-19 vaccines that are more than 90% effective.

First there was the Pfizer vaccine in Germany, then days later researchers in Russia said they had similar results, and now there’s the U.S. Moderna team as well.

There’s also another vaccine in development at The University of Oxford, which is around 70-90% effective.

But there are many asking valid questions about safety, especially considering the huge rush there’s been to develop these vaccines.

Let’s separate the facts and look at why we actually need a vaccine, who’s trying to make it, and whether enough people will actually take one for it to work.
