The overall cost to society is far too high for a flawed and slack vaccine approval process. If the vaccine has low efficacy and primarily prevents mild illness, it will offer little protection to society and may cause unimaginable harm.

But even worse, if the vaccine is ineffective, it will further fuel the anti-vaccine movement for decades to come. Infection control today. October 25, 2020.
