COVID vaccine may need yearly updates

Just The NewsScientists are warning this first group of COVID-19 vaccines could be ineffective in a year or less as new mutations and variations or the virus emerge.

The warning is take from survey by the People's Vaccine Alliance, a group of several organizations, including Amnesty International, in which two-thirds of the scientists acknowledged such a scenario. The other one-third said the timeframe to develop new vaccines to vend off the mutating virus is nine months or less.

I'd rather take my chances with natural immunity to the virus than a new, experimental vaccine every year. I don't bother with flu vaccines either.

Individuals with different risk profiles may make different decisions, and that's up to them.
