The recent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak has drawn global attention,affecting millions, disrupting economies and healthcare modalities. With its high infection rate,COVID-19 has caused a colossal health crisis worldwide. While information on the comprehensivenature of this infectious agent, SARS-CoV-2, still remains obscure, ongoing genomic studies havebeen successful in identifying its genomic sequence and the presenting antigen. These may serve aspromising, potential therapeutic targets in the effective management of COVID-19. In an attempt toestablish herd immunity, massive efforts have been directed and driven toward developing vaccinesagainst the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen. This review, in this direction, is aimed at providing the currentscenario and future perspectives in the development of vaccines against SARS-CoV-2.
