2. Usually many years. A decade is not atypical.

For covid19 it is likely going to be much faster because they literally have hundreds of millions of vaccinated people to look at. Any possibility of low occurring adverse effect from the vaccine has been ruled out or measured to the level of 1 over several hundred millions which is a lower chance than things like getting g hit by lightning ( 1 in 15000 or so) .

3. Average time for a vaccine is 8-10 years

from beginning of development to full approval and licensing. For FDA approval, from the end of phase 3 trials till full approval is 1-2 years it looks. The FDA says COVID vaccines may take 6 months for approval since they already have so much data. Usually they need a minimum of 6 months worth of data after phase 3 trials.

4. This is what I read today as well. The article I read said Jan. 2022 for Pfizer and Feb. for

Moderna based on their filing dates. The article also said it could be sooner.

6. There's a lot of pressure to fast track and the article mentioned it could happen earlier

so maybe there's a chance... but if not, we will have to wait it out.

It could have been worse I suppose.
