A recent study has identified the most prevalent long-term Covid symptom that may persist in persons who have been vaccinated.
After receiving the virus, some people develop LONG Covid, also known as post-COVID-19 fatigue syndrome. Fatigue, persistently high temperature, dyspnea, cognitive impairment, generalized pain, and mental health difficulties are common symptoms. Researchers believe that among those who have been fully immunised and get the virus, one symptom predominates over others.
Shortness of breath, chest tightness and pain, and muscle aches are common respiratory symptoms in people who have had lengthy Covid. Despite the fact that the risk of developing COVID-19 remains minimal among people who have been fully vaccinated, a new study has discovered that those who do become ill with the virus may endure long-term consequences. However, researchers discovered that in such circumstances, one symptom is more common than the others.
Researchers analyzed data from 1,497 vaccinated health-care professionals at Israel’s Shelba Medical Center for the study.
Only 39 persons were sick despite receiving the vaccine, and 19 percent of those who were infected developed symptoms that lasted at least six weeks.
Severe weariness was the most common symptom among individuals who had been on Covid for a long time, according to the researchers.
“You might say these are potentially mild symptoms, but troubling enough that some of the patients didn’t even return to work,” said Doctor Gili Regev-Yochay, director of the Sheba Medical Centre’s infection, prevention, and control unit. It’s quite alarming.”

The findings are intended to advise fully immunised people to be careful.
“It’s incredibly disturbing,” Regev-Yochay remarked. If this is what we’re going to see with all of the minimally symptomatic infections we’re seeing right now, it’s quite concerning.”
She continued by emphasizing that immunizations are still highly beneficial in averting hospitalizations and death.
“We had thought that when you got vaccinated, and even if you did have a breakthrough infection, you would have enough of an immune response to limit this protracted symptom complex now known as long Covid,” said Eric Topol, a professor of molecular medicine at Scripps Research.
“This is the first study to show that among the tiny group of persons who had breakthrough infections, there are some long-haulers.”
Other specialists believe the findings add to the growing body of evidence that fully vaccinated adults should exercise caution.
