Vaccines usually have a long approval process to make sure there are no crazy side effects, like 5 years.

And these are particularly novel "vaccine" types without prior data except for animal trials, which to my understanding were generally not good.

Could cause long term health problems we don't understand, could cause antibody dependent enhancement where the presence of antibodies that fail to kill the virus actually make the wild virus substantially MORE dangerous. (Though I'm not completely certain on the exact mechanism of how that works.)

The reality it we just don't know yet and trying to have the entire world take a new type of vaccine with no long term data to stop a virus that generally only kills very old and sick people (with rare exceptions the media likes to promote) is incredibly dumb. And that's not counting the crazy "conspiracy theory" possibility that negative long term affects are intentional.
