Re: Covid-19 vaccines...or SARS-CoV-2 vaccines? Clarification needed.
Is it correct to use the term Covid-19 vaccines?
Shouldn't these vaccines instead be described as SARS-CoV-2 vaccines?
It grates with me to use the term Covid-19 vaccine, it doesn't seem right.
Terminology was similarly incorrectly used with the initially titled 'cervical cancer vaccines', which are now more correctly described as HPV vaccines.
Surely the vaccines should be described as SARS-CoV-2 and not Covid-19?
This is an important distinction and it should be correct - can we have clarification on this?
