Resumen

La pandemia de la covid-19 ha tenido impactos inconmensurables en la economía, la educación y la socialización, además de la pérdida de millones de vidas. Por lo tanto, se ha acelerado el desarrollo de un número sin precedentes de candidatos a vacunas contra la covid-19 para controlar la pandemia. A su vez, la autorización para su uso de emergencia por parte de la Organización Mundial de la Salud permitió el inicio de la inmunización de la población a través de vacunas que aún se encuentran en ensayos clínicos. Aquí presentamos una perspectiva de los preceptos bioéticos de autonomía, no maleficencia, beneficencia y justicia en el contexto del uso de emergencia de vacunas contra la covid-19. Además, se enfatiza la importancia de la vigilancia en todas las etapas del desarrollo de la vacuna con el fin de detectar efectos adversos y asegurar el cumplimiento de los preceptos bioéticos.
