Scientists have convincingly proved that after vaccinations, there is much less chance of getting sick with long-term covid.
The UK Health Safety Agency explained that even with a possible infection after vaccination, the disease will pass in a mild form, and development prolonged Covid little chance.
To reach these conclusions, the results of 15 studies conducted in different countries, the purpose of which was to study the effect of vaccination given in the period before the disease, were considered. Scientists have discovered, writes air forcethat after two doses of Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca or one dose of Janssen, the development of long-term coronavirus (over 28 days) was 2 times less common than in unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated (first dose). The best results in this regard were shown by representatives of the 60+ age group.
The effect of vaccinations on patients who already had long-term symptoms was also studied. Researchers have found that vaccines relieve symptoms within weeks, days, and sometimes even immediately.
Approximately 2% of coronavirus cases in the UK report long-term Covid symptoms of fatigue, shortness of breath and joint or muscle pain, according to the UKHSA, the UK Health Security Agency. They last 4 weeks or more. After vaccination, this period is significantly reduced.
UKHSA Head of Immunization Dr Mary Ramsay says:
“These studies add to the potential benefits of receiving a full course of Covid-19 vaccinations. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself from severe symptoms when you are infected and may also help reduce long-term exposure. For most people, the symptoms of prolonged Covid are short-lived and go away with time. But for some, the symptoms can be more severe and disrupt their daily lives. If you are experiencing unusual symptoms, especially for more than four weeks after exposure, you should consider contacting your healthcare provider.”
