It certainly is a load of vaccine candidates. It might be a load of crap. Time will tell if anything actually works for the masses.

We must all hope that none of these result in a low affinity antibody response to the virus upon exposure. That could actually make things worse by way of antibody-dependent enhancement .*

This can happen when non-neutralizing antibodies are the main response. This could result from an aging immune system, or from genetic factors in each individual. It is the reason that a safe vaccine was never developed for the first SARs virus back in 2003.

(this link does mention the potential for ADE in these SARS-CoV-2 vaccines, and provides background.)
