Vaccination against COVID-19
Hope in a vaccine

The EU is responsible for ensuring the general public in EU/EEA Member States have access to safe and effective vaccines against COVID-19.
After an evaluation by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and consultations with Member States, the European Union gave permission on 21 December 2020 for the first vaccinations against COVID-19.

As soon as enough vaccines are available, BHR will be ready to set up centers to vaccinate people as well as test them.

How do COVID-19 vaccines work?

Vaccines against COVID-19 prevent it by eliciting an immune response.

Most COVID-19 vaccines can elicit an immune response to small amounts of SARS-CoV-2. This is the virus that causes COVID-19.

If a person vaccinated against COVID-19 later becomes infected with the virus, their immune system will recognize it.

Since the immune system will be prepared to attack it, the person will be protected against SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.
