IMO, the failed (Merck) or repeatedly delayed (Sanofi, Novavax) vaccines really underscore that the rapid development of safe and very effective vaccines by Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J was no sure thing.

Drug development is a very complex, expensive, and risky proposition, littered with unexpected delays and outright failures.  Things rarely go according to plan.

We really lucked out to not only get one effective vaccine so rapidly, but three authorized in the US.

CureVac - there's another one that failed.

Really, it wasn't a foregone conclusion that we would have these vaccines.  Lots of candidates failed.

Yeah.  Astrazenica is approved elsewhere (still dunno what their issue was in the us) and novavax is targetting developing nations.  Novavax was just too late to get a foothold in most markets.

The three approved in the us are way more than enough here.  And what's approved around the world is pretty much enough to supply the world.

We need to focus on developing effective treatments for severe breakthrough cases... And fighting long covid (if that's even possible).
