Not mutate differently but vax causes the hotter strains to live because the host would have died.
If the host is staying alive it can carry on carrying around the hot virus.
Did you read about Marek disease.....and the vaccine?
Could some vaccines make diseases more deadly? | Science | AAAS
As Read first argued in a Nature paper 14 years ago, by keeping their hosts alive, such "imperfect" or "leaky" vaccines could give deadlier pathogens an edge, allowing them to spread when they would normally burn out quickly.
Over the past few decades, Marek's disease has become much more virulent—which some researchers believe is the result of vaccination.

No, that was the india strain.

"The data is consistent with a study released last week by the CDC - Vaccinated people may transmit the Delta variant now responsible for 80% of COVID cases in the U.S, just as easily as the unvaccinated." (childrenshealthdefense.org)
“So the more Delta is infectious, the more reason for concern,” Kondrashov said. “By having a situation where you vaccinate everybody, a vaccine-resistant mutant actually gains a selective advantage.”
Experts warned for months vaccines could cause more dangerous COVID variants.

This is not the coronavirus that's been around for decades, and this is not a vaccine that was tested decades ago. So far all the data proves vaccinated individuals are less at risk than unvaccinated ones.

The Delta strain was first identified in India in December last year, before the vaccines were rolled out to the public. It already existed.

Are you suggesting that the virus will mutate differently when infecting someone who has had a vaccination than someone who has natural and immunity?

Several studies have shown that people infected with Covid-19 tend to have T cells that can target the virus, regardless of whether they have experienced symptoms. So far, so normal. But scientists have also recently discovered that some people can test negative for antibodies against Covid-19 and positive for T cells that can identify the virus. This has led to suspicions that some level of immunity against the disease might be twice as common as was previously thought.
Most bizarrely of all, when researchers tested blood samples taken years before the pandemic started, they found T cells which were specifically tailored to detect proteins on the surface of Covid-19. This suggests that some people already had a pre-existing degree of resistance against the virus before it ever infected a human. And it appears to be surprisingly prevalent: 40-60% of unexposed individuals had these cells.
