They've got no other option as the populace isn't gonna cop more lockdowns. If it gets worse you almost need an authoritarian to come inWe have to hope that the vaccine manufacturers can keep ahead of the mutations. Even if they do I guess the problem is we do not want to be trying to get vaccinated every twelve months. Imagine if they have to try to vaccinate 18 million again in 2022?
Hopefully the virus will stop mutating and the current vaccines provide some sort of herd immunity. World leaders such as Biden, Merkel, Johnson and Macron are putting a lot of faith in vaccines stopping COVID. We have to hope their faith is justified.
