The efforts of ministries of health, the World Health Organization and regional organizations to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic around the world include providing and updating guidance and advice on critical interventions, distributing vital medical supplies to those in need along with the competition for time to develop and deploy safe and effective vaccines.

After receiving the vaccine, if the body is subsequently exposed to those disease-causing germs, it is immediately ready to destroy them and prevent severe cases of illness.
