The Ten Most Controversial
… out of the 241 research projects in progress worldwide.
In France, Covid-19 vaccines will be 100% free; as promised by Monsieur Olivier Veran, a French Neurologist serving as Minister of Solidarity and Health.
But many are the controversies that surround this issue. Primarily, the French people needs to be reassured about the technologies used in the available vaccines.
At the same time, there is a great need for transparent information and proper education about the data from clinical trials worldwide.
And so In layman’s term, our team created a visual comparison of the 10 most controversial Covid-19 vaccines that reached Phase 3 studies. According to WHO, these trials are conducted on larger populations and in different regions and countries; and are often the last step before a new molecule gets approved.
“We need vaccines to achieve herd immunity…”
– Dr Anthony Fauci, M.D., Infectious-disease expert, NIAID director, USA
But what is the ethical response to avoid mistrust of Covid-19 vaccines?
France’s President Emmanuel Macron declared that Covid-19 vaccination will not be mandatory and will be carried out on a strictly voluntary basis. This pronouncement respects biosafety and the French people’s consent. Faced with these Covid-19 vaccines, some of which are new type and developed in urgence; there is a compelling need to explain with the greatest transparency in order to obtain a large vaccine coverage.
“Developing these vaccines in record time is justified because the circumstances are exceptional.”
– Dr Axel Kahn, M.D., Geneticist, Research Director at INSERM and President of Ligue Contre le Cancer, France
Remember, this pandemic has become lethal for countries.
Without herd immunity, Covid-19 will not be eradicated. We can’t live with it and we can’t get out of it.

It is not intended to take the place of either the written law or regulations in France or elsewhere. It does not replace a systematic and critical review of the broader scientific literature. It is not the authors’ intention to provide specific medical advice to users, instead we provide information to help better understand the ten most controversial Covid-19 vaccines, and the current approaches related to their efficacy and side effects, in short or long term; so as to be able to better monitor them in the months and years to come. Finally, we urge users to consult with a qualified health care professional for diagnosis and answers to their personal medical questions.
