According to a study published in the journal “The Lancet Infections Diseases”, taking the two doses of the vaccine, that is, the complete vaccination, reduces the risk of “long-term Covid” in half.
The study relied on data on symptoms of corona from more than 4 million people in the United Kingdom.
The researchers found that those who took the two doses of the vaccine were 47 percent less likely to have long-term Covid.
And what is meant by “long-term Covid” is the continuation of the symptoms of corona known to the patient, for a period of more than 28 days.
And the study indicated that those who complained of “long-term Covid” reported remarkably continuous heat, persistent cough, and fatigue.
The study monitored the condition of nearly one million people who were fully vaccinated against the emerging corona virus, which appeared in China in late 2019, and then turned into a global pandemic.
The study showed that only 0.2 percent of those who received the full vaccination contracted “Covid 19” disease, and even when they were infected, they showed only limited symptoms, compared to people who did not take the vaccination.
As for taking only one dose of the vaccine, it was found that it plays a limited role in preventing the risk of infection with “Covid 19”.
The study included the period between December 2020 and early July 2021, a period that witnessed the exacerbation of the “alpha” mutant in the United Kingdom and the beginning of the spread of the “delta” wave.
