They can only say 4-6 months because the vaccines have not been approved for much longer and there is not yet "proof" that they protect longer. It does not mean that they don't protect for longer, just that they can't know for sure.

And like anything biological, it will differ vastly from person to person. Some (a small minority) won't have any protection, some will have an immunity for much longer, and some will be in between. Even if the protection decreases after 6 months, you might still be better protected than with no vaccine at all.

Unfortunately, when something is that new, it limits what we actually know (and it goes for this disease at least as much as for the vaccines for it).
