This report focuses on the World Health Organization's (WHO) Emergency Use Listing (EUL) of authorized vaccines as of 13 September 2021. Currently six vaccines are authorised for emergency use: BNT162b2/COMIRNATY (Pfizer-BioNTech, USA), Spikevax/Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine/ mRNA-1273 (Moderna, USA), Vaxzevria/ChAdOx1 nCoV-19/AZD1222/Covishield (AstraZeneca/Oxford, UK, India), Janssen Covid-19 vaccine/Johnson & Johnson (Janssen, USA), Sinopharm/BBIBP-CorV (China), and Sinovac/CoronaVac (China). This report provides a condensed summary concerning vaccine efficacy, safety, protection against variants, and further important information for each vaccine, in the form of a synoptic table. Additionally, information regarding the yet-to-be-approved1 Novavax vaccine NVX-COV2373 was added to the table, upon request of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). Novavax is currently awaiting FDA and WHO EUL approval after assessing safety and immunogenicity in Phase 1/2 clinical trials. NVX-CoV2373 is currently in two pivotal Phase 3 studies to evaluate vaccine efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity2. The information and data in this synoptic table was extracted from phase III clinical trials and from observational studies. This report particularly focuses on vaccine efficacy and effectiveness, including variants, booster doses, and safety concerns such as myocarditis cases reported after COVID-19 vaccination in adults and children.
