Thanks, Jerry for starting this new discussion to pick up where you, @tjgisewhite @estrada53 @rosemarya @danab @ca426 @contentandwell and few others went on a tangential side conversation about the development of a COVID-19 vaccine in the shingles vaccine discussion here:

@rosemarya is right. It's too early to know.

From Mayo Clinic
"Global health authorities and vaccine developers are currently partnering to support the technology needed to produce vaccines. Some approaches have been used before to create vaccines, but some are still quite new.
– Live vaccines
– Inactivated vaccines
– Genetically engineered vaccines

We are still months away from having a vaccine and several successful vaccines will be needed to provide coverage for the country and worldwide. Once we have a vaccine, Mayo Clinic will certainly provide guidance to transplant recipients.

@colleenyoung This is exactly right, it is premature to try to figure this out. We need to wait to see what will be available. I have to admit though, I am concerned it will be a live vaccine and not an option for those of us on immunosuppressants.

Looking forward to reading those links you sent, too late now. 😴
