Interesting, but only one amino acid difference of 1300

Is a very small change. Obviously it must change the ability of the virus to attach, but how different would the antibody for each strain be?

In other words is thus a significant enough change to limit vaccine function? Could be, but the indication that other coronavirus infections may provide some cross immunity makes me think that one amino acid change wouldn’t have a large effect on the vaccine,
