Research published in Nature Medicine on May 25 reveals that even people vaccinated for Covid 19 if affected by the slightest infection, can experience enfeebling, long-lasting symptoms that can affect the heart, brain, lungs, and other parts of the body.
However, another research done of 13 million veterans shows that vaccination against the virus responsible for causing Covid 19 has helped curb the risk of getting Covid infection by 15%, while the risk of death has been reduced by 34%, compared to people without vaccination.
Apart from this, the risk of diseases expected to be caused due to the virus, such as lung and blood clotting disorders has been reduced by 49 and 56% respectively among the vaccinated.
The clinical epidemiologist at Washington University, Ziyad-Al-Aly said, “Vaccinations remain critically important in the fight against COVID-19.” He further added that, “Vaccinations reduce the risk of hospitalization and death from COVID-19. But vaccines seem to only provide modest protection against the long COVID. People recovering from breakthrough COVID-19 infection should continue to monitor their health and see a healthcare provider if lingering symptoms make it difficult to carry out daily activities.”
“We need to urgently develop and deploy additional layers of protection that could be sustainably implemented to reduce the risk of long COVID.”
Nasal Vaccines or other vaccines or drugs can be included for such protective layers. It can be convenient and potent compared to current shots. These drugs or vaccines will aim at minimizing risks from deathly Covid Diseases.
