    The delta variant (B.1.617.2) was a variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19; it has mutations in the gene encoding the SARSCoV- 2 spike protein. When a virus replicates or makes copies of itself, it sometimes changes a little bit. These changes are called “mutations.” A virus with one or several new mutations is referred to as a “variant” of the original virus. The more viruses circulate, the more they may change. These changes can occasionally result in a virus variant that is better adapted to its environment compared to the original virus. This process of changing and selection of successful variants is called “virus evolution.” Some mutations can lead to changes in a virus’s characteristics, such as altered transmission A COVID-19 vaccine is a vaccine intended to provide acquired immunity against Severe Acute Respiratory Synd..
