Can COVID get vaccine resistance

If bacteria can get antibiotic resistance, can a virus become vaccine resistant?

In other words, variants are not only created by infection but an arms race between viruses and the vaccines that help your body detect them

No. That isn’t how it works

Thanks. So viruses have not become resistant to vaccines - they merely evolve and then you need to update the vaccines to protect against the evolved virus


Bacteria is a tad different. It evolves as well. Antibiotics kill the bacteria but some is strong enough survive. It becomes more resistant to antibiotics.

Viruses don’t really do that.
