Counterfeiting is a well-organized criminal activity that is difficult to avert if it is not prevented at an early stage. Pharmaceutical companies need to take proactive steps to maintain the revenue, credibility, and reputation of their company. States procuring new medicaments should be particularly careful not to allow counterfeit products to reach free market circulation where they may endanger the health of citizens. During the COVID19 pandemic, vaccines are still being developed and will be limited after being placed on the market. New goods with supply shortages are usually the most counterfeited ones and therefore we can expect that the vaccine against COVID19 will also be counterfeited and counterfeits will appear on the market.
As governments prepare to distribute COVID-19 vaccines, criminal organizations are planning on how to infiltrate supply chains with their illicit knock offs. Criminal groups will attack the unsuspecting public with counterfeit medicines and medical devices that could pose a serious risk to people›s health and even their lives.
The value of a successful vaccine for one›s life far exceeds its financial value. It has the potential to protect people from the virus, which for some is a matter of life or death. However, for the vaccine to reach its full and most effective potential, it will have to reach all parts of the world.
Traceability of COVID-19 vaccines is vital to the current pandemic, as it would ensure that traceable vaccines are genuine, safe, effective, and properly distributed.
In case of success, the COVID-19 vaccine traceability system could create a base stone for future pharmaceutical solutions and a positive legacy from the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
In addition to focusing on appropriately distributed vaccination against COVID-19, it is important to focus on detecting unauthorized and counterfeit test kits and their manufacturers or distributors.
The European Anti-Fraud Office announced that it has already identified 340 companies trading counterfeit products related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The vast majority of these counterfeit goods are ineffective, if not downright life-threatening.

The vaccine passport will also contain the track and trace data of the vaccine (manufacturer, logistical information, serial number, date of manufacture to the date of vaccination of the citizen).
A centralized information structure is needed for the secure management, sharing, and verification of test and vaccination data corresponding to the identity of travelers by border control requirements.
