How do scientists the effectiveness of the vaccine for future mutators?

Posted , 1 user is following.

We all know that viruses evolve and mutate.

When scientists develop vaccine for a specific virus like covid 19, do they test the effectiveness of the vaccine for future mutants? If yes, how do they do it?

I'm curious to know the details on how they do it but please keep it simple with plain english as I'm not from an academic medical background.
