Public Health Perspectives as the COVID-19 Vaccines Enter Production and Distribution Phases

Authors: Rabiu Momoh and Mohammed Rahman

Abstract: If the vaccines achieve the desired effect of protecting vulnerable and frontline workers, and maybe the general world population from this infection, then a lot would stand to be gained in returning the world to the normalcy of a pre-COVID-19 era, where business and international travels were in full swing. Relationships that were constrained or restrained between individuals, groups, businesses, communities, or nations will be reconsidered. We may be able to markedly reduce this virus's infection rate and its accompanying death toll and, maybe soon, we can eradicate this virus as was achieved with the smallpox virus.
