Blockchain for Vaccine Supply Chain: Challenges and Resilient Solution Strategies Facing Covid-19

A Covid-19 Current economic trends and personal routines have been altered by the pandemic problem. For practitioners and scholars in supply chain and logistics, this disruptive event poses a significant challenge. Weaknesses throughout the whole supply chain, from purchase to delivery, have been brought to light by the present health crisis. Every link in the chain is put through stress and is at significant danger. But there is always a chance amid adversity. It is a chance to reconsider the logistical plans and the approaches to take in terms of supply chain resilience. The key to a successful economic and social rebirth is universal vaccination. Only a vaccination that is widely available could open the door to a fuller recovery. However, it is challenging to fully supervise and guarantee this massive operation. Risks include fraud, vaccine diversion, speculation, vaccine expiration, and cold chain management. Participating in such a vaccination supply chain can save lives and aid in a long-term recovery of the economy. We hope to give readers of this chapter an overview of the research on vaccine supply chains, main problems encountered during the Covid-19 health crisis, and network design and recovery solutions that may be used. Additionally, we want to discuss the primary restrictions on the supply chain for vaccines and how Blockchain might assist to control flows along the value chain.
