This paper investigates the impacts of corona virus pandemic (COVID-19) and the vaccination required, as well as prospective policy directions to limit its effects, based on a comprehensive survey of the literature. According to our findings, the Covid-19 pandemic has had negative consequences on humanity, the human body, and people of various age groups, in addition to mortality. This 2019 novel corona COVID19 is a highly contagious zoonosis caused by SARSCoV2 and spread from person to person by respiratory secretions. The elderly and persons with comorbidities are the most vulnerable populations who require ventilation. People over the age of 55 to 65 who have a history of chronic diseases (uncontrolled hypertension, diabetes, COPD, and all other clinical disorders) should avoid contact with potentially infected patients. Furthermore, the survey indicates the safe and effective vaccination and its preventive measures. Finally, this research looks into future research directions.
