Many different vaccination strategies are being tested, even a noncoronavirus-specific candidate (Bacille Calmette-Guerin vaccine) [2,3] is being investigated because of its potential to promote a less inflammatory immune response to respiratory pathogens [2]. However, a SARS-Cov-2–specific vaccine will likely be a better strategy.
