Maybe what’s going to happen is:
certain parts of the world get access to a vaccine;
those parts of the world lose interest in covid (we see a strong tendency already, right?);
covid remains endemic to certain other parts of the world the first parts don’t care about;
we see new variants every few years that require new vaccines (as tweaks of old ones);
we get new shots, like the yearly flu shot;
covid becomes a chronic background thing, like tuberculosis or hepatitis C or MRSA;
life goes on, with yet another microbe trying to kill us and vaccines protecting us;
anti-vaxxers continue to be unable to grasp that 1 in 10,000 means hundreds of thousands and millions die unnecessarily because they don’t personally know someone who was affected.
Hmm, maybe I should put some paragraph breaks in here.

It’s just… like… a bad case of the flu. Young people aren’t really dying from it.
Geo. Washington misquotes. Like… a Washington-specific Snopes.
That actually WAS a really good article.
