3. They all exist now, they are in trials. I am not privy to what routes to market will be taken. We

are just the guinea pigs/lab rats who want to help out as best we can. Every visit we make we stress as best we can that we hope Moderna makes these variant tweaked boosters available ASAP (of course after due diligence with prelim studies for safety purposes). That said, we have basically zero actual input power, other than our blood.

Pfizer did a major backtracking in July and August. Publicly up until then they had said they saw no need for variant specific tweaked vaccines atm. Apparently Delta's continuing rampage has changed their mind. I think it is being driven more by the German end (BioNTech) than the US end (Pfizer) of the partnership. Moderna was more open to it (as evidenced by our trial study that started over 6 months ago now, and also comments from our trial doctors, who are NOT Moderna nor BioNtech employees, and thus are neutrals) from the beginning (from all that I can gather).
