 Today's news on Canada's front page is the closest yet for this country. I won't be throwing away my mask and dashing to the nearest crowded restaurant. I do hope that a few vaccines arrive at the finished line at the same time. This will insure that no community gets gouged by one rich corporation. For only one community to get vaccinated would not mean much for a world wide pandemic. From another chart I read that about 4 other companies in the world are in second stage trials, which is also close but no cigar.

From the article: "All told, the federal government has secured 358 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine..... ."  And let it be known that I want all ten that are allotted for me!!   I'd like to see how the doh-reh-me for these "insurance policies" (?) will be paid out... though in fairness I haven't looked for the info.

I'd gladly donate my vaccine dose to someone who actually wants it.

I think the Germans will be first to develop a serum. I don't hear much about their progress, and personal experiences tells me that people who work hard and keep their mouth shut reach the goal line faster.

... at this point is it known whether immunity is actually gained by having been infected [i.e. naturally (?)], or how long it might last?   Would it be different with immunity acquired via vaccination?

I think we’d have to get vaccinated once or twice a year. They (“experts”)* have always said to get flu vaccines every year in October so they’d last til spring through the winter flu season.

*people in the know who know they don't know everything about the unknowable

... so my making fun of 358 million is a bit premature??  Maybe in a year I'll be criticizing JT for ordering too few!    wink

Edit:  Once it's* "made its* rounds,"  would there be any advantage  by continuing with the vaccination/immunization shots..... aside from those who've not been afflicted once?     

 * = note the placement [or lack thereof] of the " ' ."

Edit #2: Upon I a bit more thinking, I suppose it would be similar to like you mention re. regular (?) flu/flus... given mutations and all that .....

One would have to galvanize one’s inner forces to combat any misleading and/or vague recommendations that could steer one’s sorry carcass into an early grave.

Both are unknown, and yes, they can be different: the immune response triggered by an infection is usually different from the immune response triggered from the vaccine.
