The emergence of Aedes mosquito-borne viral diseases is a global public health challenge. Since mosquito control programs are not highly efficient for outbreak containment, vaccines are essential to limit disease burden. Besides yellow fever vaccines, a vaccine against dengue is now available, while research on vaccines against Zika has just started. Several vaccine candidates against chikungunya are undergoing preclinical studies, and few of them have been tested in Phase II trials.
