Isn't one of the problems with the vaccines that use an adenovirus as a vector that the body can  build up immunity to the adenovirus used as a vector or in some cases, already have immunity to the particular adenovirus used as a vector (I think that is a criticism of at least one of the Chinese vaccines).

... tailored to combat a coronavirus variant first documented in South Africa could be ready by the end of 2021

That's great, but aren't there at least three wide-spread variants?  SA, Brazil, and UK/US?

The AZ vaccine is effective against the UK B117 and Brazilian P1 variants. It does not work against the South African variant. Hence, the amended vaccine.

I would be more worried about them getting the dosing right.

Try to use the same dose on everyone dipshiats.
