Dr Lee explains: how was the COVID-19 vaccine developed so quickly?

Ever wondered how the COVID-19 vaccine was developed in record time? Dr Lee explains.
The early release of funding allowed scientists to focus on creating an effective vaccine while ensuring all the necessary safety procedures were upheld throughout the trial stages.

Developing a vaccine typically takes years but much of the work had already begun on a coronavirus vaccine during recent previous pandemics such as SARS and MERS. This gave researchers a head start on creating a safe and effective vaccine against the virus that causes COVID-19.
