Vaccine Work Is Never Done

For a researcher, the work on any vaccine is never truly over. Even when it’s available for the population, they continue to do their research, monitor, and look at any necessary changes. They are also continuously looking at developing other vaccines that are an arm of their current strain because colds, cases of flu, and other diseases change over time, and this means the vaccine needs to change with them. 

Developing and approving vaccines is a long process that usually takes years, so if a vaccine comes out within a matter of months, you need to thank hard-working researchers, experts, and the advancement in technology.
