It's extremely often that they mutate, this is why we have a slightly altered flu vaccine most years. It's just in the news with covid alot as it's of interest and click bait to a certain degree. Unless it mutates alot I don't think we have anything to worry about in the immediate. Also if there is a massive change in the virus I think that the pharma companies said it'll take about 6 weeks for them to change stuff in the vaccine
