Abstract Title: 

Zinc role in Covid-19 disease and prevention


Treatments for Covid-19 do not replace vaccines and other measures such as restrictions. However, every practical, effective, and safe means to reduce Covid-19 mortality, morbidity, and collateral damage should be used. Vaccines are not 100% effective for all current and future variants and have associated adverse events. Zinc (Zn) has positive effects against Covid-19 infection. Zn is also an anti-inflammatory and detox compound. As such, it may reduce Covid-19 vaccines’ adverse events while also preventing more serious consequences from Covid-19 infection. Despite no data suggest yet Zn may mitigate damages induced by Covid-19 vaccines, no data similarly suggest Zn may limit or boost the efficacy of the vaccines. Thus, logical arguments support monitoring of Zinc levels to satisfy sufficiency irrespective of the administration of vaccines during the Covid-19 emergency, as it is well established Zn is effective as a preventive treatment.
