UK scientists are developing a COVID vaccine with an in-built insurance against mutations in the virus.

The jab, being developed at the University of Nottingham, should still be effective even if a new variant evolves that knocks out other vaccines.

Since "variations" on Covid19 involved only 0,1% of the virus mutating there should be ways to create vaccines that can deal with much more variations of Covid19. One can only hope present vaccines cover most of the risks from variants enough till new-"variant-proof" vaccines become available...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
