65 Million People Suffer From Long Covid
Experts Say New Vaccines Are The Best Defense
Heart palpitations, Anxiety, Fatigue, Dizziness, Difficulty breathing, No taste or smell. One in five American adults who have had Covid-19 and more than 65 million people worldwide have spent months or even years suffering from the persistent, crippling symptoms of long Covid, and 155 Americans die each day from Covid-19-related conditions currently!
The only way to prevent long Covid is to not be infected. That makes a new series of updated vaccines an essential tool in our ongoing fight against Covid-19. Vaccines reduce the chance of getting Covid-19 and long Covid and can mitigate the impact of both. And shots are especially important heading into the winter months, when Covid-19, flu and RSV rates spike.
As transmission, hospitalizations and deaths from the virus rose this fall, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in September approved two updated vaccines for emergency use, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months gets a shot.
Stop COVID – Get Vaccinated! Don’t take chances the odds are not in your favor. If you get COVID you have a 20% chance of getting long COVID.
