In brief: Yes

If you are on Minocin (minocycline) or any antibiotic and get an infection it means the infection is resistant to the antibiotic you are on or is a type of infection ( viral, fungal, etc.
) that will not respond to this type of medication. This can also happen if you have a weakened immune system.

Most sore throats are caused by viruses not bacteria.
Minocin (minocycline) does not kill viruses.
