This feels very optimistic for vaccine for the masses.
Some people *may* get vaccinated in 18 months. But it won't be most of us.
Vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 will be very important. But don't get fooled by press releases.
To get them will take time.
 Merck and J&J did their phase 1-2-3 more or less in parallel. Will the FDA / EMA allow such
an approach for covid-19 vaccine?. I would hope so.
If Phase 3 trials are successful, there is also a precedent for immediately providing the vaccine
under an emergency use authorization (pre-licensure) as long as recipients provide informed
consent. This has been done in the DRC for Ebola.

6 to 18 months? There’s 4 to 16 months left only
