I told you so:

Covid Whiplash: Now-Dominant BA.2 Variant Being Quickly Overtaken Across The U.S. By Yet Another Faster-Growing Omicron Offshoot, Says CDC
Just as most Americans have caught wind of the BA.2 variant of Omicron which overtook the original Omicron as the dominant strain in the U.S. less than a month ago another possibly faster-growing version of Omicron is quickly making inroads.

The new Omicron sublineage BA.2.12.1 now accounts for 19% of all new cases specifically sequenced for variants in the country, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. That means the strain barely on the national radar two weeks ago is now being identified in close to 1 in 5 newly-sequenced cases, up from 1.5% less than a month before on 3/19. Given that, Americans trying to keep up may be experiencing a form of variant whiplash.

The more vaccines used, the more the virus evolves in response. The cycle will never end until transmissions end. And yet the very rationale behind vaccines is to reduce the immediate danger of transmissions (and hence remove the incentive for stopping trasmissions). Welcome to Western civilization.
