COVID vaccine may help long-haulers


This article offers some hope for long-haulers.

One of the largest paitent communities, Survivor Corps, which has a public facebook group with 159,000 members, recently took a poll to see whether there was any substance to rumors that these patients were feeling better after being vaccinated.

"Out of 400 people, 36% showed an improvement in symptoms, anywhere between a mild improvement to complete resolution of symptoms," said Diana Berrent, a long-haul COVID-19 patient who founded the group. Survivor Corps has become active in patient advocacy and is a resource for researchers studying the new condition.

I realize this is anecdotal , but studies are under way. Also in the article, some COVID recoverers , 3-5%, experience a worsening of symptoms.

Good article. It looks like the beginning of some much needed data, pertaining to the "long-term" effects of the virus and treatment.
