I read Sweden is set to receive the first batches of updated Pfizer vaccines (modified to combat the known variants) in September/October. No word on quantities though.
Also this isn't flu, it's a lot more difficult to model and understanding is still limited. There's a big risk that new variants could keep undoing the vaccine and treatment protections and keep this running a lot further into the future.
I'm glad for you, but the protection for long covid is not that well.Just got my Johnson & Johnson jab. In two weeks I will be free!

Things have been going wrong here in the Netherlands. The Minister lured students into having a vaccine by saying "dansen met Janssen" (dancing with Johnson), and people went wild, partying right after the jab, way too early. Additionally, there was bad access control in nightclubs. People faking tests etcetera. Numbers went up way faster than (the government) expected. Result:

Great. Social distancing is going downhill as well.
That's hardly the fault of the vaccine though, is it? Full protection applies only 14 days after the jab, you're told at every opportunity.
There was an outbreak of this at my further education collegeWhen I was a kid i had a GF who contracted mononucleosis.
