The numerous ongoing research programs aimed at finding and producing rapidly an effective anti-coronavirus vaccine require some explanations about the vaccine immunobiology principles. In this article, the fundamental concepts of modern vaccine preparation are summarized and some of the main research initiatives in vaccine production are illustrated. The author hopes that positive results may emerge soon, allowing the solution of the current coronavirus pandemics emerged at the end of 2019 and still ongoing worldwide.
