The pandemic caused by the new SARS-CoV-2 virus is driving the need to test and approve new vaccines quickly. The report enucleates the ethical criteria that must be respected in this context. It describes the scientific and methodological aspects underlying the experimentation of vaccines, the regulatory aspects, the procedures adopted to reduce the time needed to grant authorizations.
