Keep in mind that the Flu vaccine does not protect you 100% - I mean sure it's better than 0%, and the vaccine only protects you from the strains they believe will be active, but it is not 100% protection - but somehow for most people the Flu season won't be a problem this year, assuming some people wear masks and all, so if you avoid contact, apply COVID19 hygiene and most people around you wear masks it should lower the risk even further.
And if they come out with the Covid-19 vaccine........
Today people's 401k dropped by 4%, and expect another 25% drop before EOY. This will be mostly due to the latest scandal of banks laundering money - so we may see 2008 all over again. COVID19 is exploding in the US and around the world - there is little or no hope for a vaccine anytime soon, the virus has mutated and more infectious, and some studies are coming showing that people are getting reinfected multiple times in the span of a few months, so this makes any vaccine protection seem more and more unlikely. Then you have Biden set to win by a landslide, so that will remove all hope for a quick vaccine - they don't call him sleepy Biden for nothing
He aims for long long term recovery over a quick recovery, totally disregarding all senior citizens who are living off their 401k, even though he himself is at that certain age, but he doesn't give a crap if people's retirement savings will drop by more than 30%-40% under his Presidency He will basically undo everything unorthodox and unconventional - and fast tracking / fast approval is not his area - in fact, the DemocRATS are just that RATS, they RAVAGE and destroy, they don't aim for positive change, they just leave a ravaging trail and then try to fix their mess or leave it to the GOP in future elections.
So yeah the prospects of an EFFECTIVE vaccine are slim - and under Trump, a vaccine even with 50% efficacy would be approved. He will even dump his OWN money and fortune to make sure a vaccine is available in a few months time. Under Biden ? AHAHAHAHAHAHA fat chance.
So don't count on a vaccine anytime soon - the whole world is crumbling into a great depression........ people have all gone MAD and not following guidelines to stop the spread.......... Only in China and FEW countries did they lower their numbers - the rest, well it's partying, bars, ungrateful and fornicating youth, total disregard for others, social gatherings, crowds, totally ignoring pandemic - EVEN if a vaccine were to come out soon, it would take years until enough of the world population receives it - and unlike the Flu and other vaccine, this will have a lower efficacy, and if people keep being a bunch of you know what, the virus will continue spreading. A vaccine alone won't stop the pandemic.
The show's over..........NOW today we have proof, banks are the biggest scammers and ponzi scheme operators, working hand in hand with organised crime.
