"will not end the pandemic due to new variants"

That's because vaccine developers have made the mistake that I suspected they would.

It takes a week or so to develop a mRNA vaccine. The vaccines we have now were developed in early 2020, the rest of the wait was testing and manufacturing. But the current plan is to keep using that early 2020 vaccine, and in fact just giving more shots of it as boosters, when what should be happening is continuous refinement of the vaccine design as variants pop up.

Getting it right is unfortunately going to require adjustments to the way regulators approach vaccine approval.
