Not to surprising as true clinical trial take years. They are rushing this and it likely will not turn out well. At one point they thought that they had a working vaccination for aids. It was tested among high risk groups and appeared to be very effective. However the long term trial showed that after two years the recipients we almost 50% more likely to become infected with HIV than unvaccinated people in the same control group. The vaccine was abandoned but it does illustrate that sometime it takes years for the full effect of the vaccine to be known.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.
