Fully vaccinated people dramatically less likely to suffer from long COVID

People who are fully vaccinated against COVID are dramatically less likely to get so-called long COVID.

Furthermore, those who are unvaccinated and come down with long COVID may recover from persistent symptoms faster if they then get the vaccine.

The review, from the U.K. Health Security Agency determined that people who were fully vaccinated “who became infected with COVID-19

  • were roughly half as likely to have any symptoms lasting more than a month,
  • 78% less likely to have symptoms lasting 12 to 20 weeks, and
  • 13% less likely to have at least one symptom at 6 months.

The review was based upon six studies and is summarized in a rapid evidence briefing document [pdf].”

This blog was accurate as of the day of posting. However, as the COVID-19 pandemic rapidly evolves and the scientific community’s understanding of the novel coronavirus and the COVID vaccine develops, the information above may have changed since it was last updated. While I aim to keep all of my blogs on COVID and the COVID vaccine up to date, please visit online resources provided by the CDC, WHO, and your local public health department to stay informed on the latest news.
