If the coronavirus mutated to 30 different strains, how many vaccines would need to be produced?

It is too soon to know if different strains of COVID-19 would behave like influenza, which is fought with multiple vaccines that change every year. COVID-19 vaccine development is based on the idea that vaccines would be effective against different strains.
