Vaccine protection against COVID-19 short-lived, booster shots important. A new study has found current mRNA vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna) offer the greatest duration of protection, nearly three times as long as that of natural infection and the Johnson & Johnson and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines.
I have some good news. I was doing much better on my long covid about a year after infection. Then got the vaccine and got a whole new batch of symptoms. Next vaccine I stayed the same, no better no worse. The third vaccine I got more new symptoms, some nasty brain issues. I was dreading vaccine four, I had already lost my short term memory and fatigue from shot three was debilitating at this point, though I could work in the mornings, but I figured I'd have to stop working after vax four at the very least.
Weirdly shot four "cured" me. I'm still waiting for the shoe to drop, but every day goes by and the fatigue is not there. My oxygen is great. Even my eye convergence is back to normal. The only symptom left is short term memory, so that may be ongoing, but I'm used to that now. And I couldn't say that I have long covid now. It's a very weird feeling after years of being sick and afraid of the future. Long covid really can become your identity.
So I just wanted to write this to say you never know what is going to work for you. I assumed mine was permanent and going to worsen with each vaccine. But in reality, any of us could find something that somehow fixes us tomorrow. I'm not stupid enough to declare myself symptom free forever. My next vax could put me right back or even worse. But for today I feel 100%.
