This is not a statement about the need for covid vaccinations or not [or total different options] but if already……

Before covid, Maryland based Novavax had worked on vaccines against Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), H1N1 influenza, Zika virus, and Ebola virus.

But fast forward to today and a series of setbacks has left Novavax lagging far behind its industry rivals Pfizer and Moderna. Its vaccine remains unauthorised by a major regulator, and so it cannot deliver doses to Covax or any other government.
