Taskforce: Early indications vaccine can help relieve long-haul COVID symptoms

A military-run taskforce on the pandemic says there are preliminary indications that the coronavirus vaccine can help relieve lingering symptoms among “long-haul” COVID patients.

“Preliminary reports indicate that those who suffer from persistent symptoms even after their recovery are reporting a significant improvement in their condition after receiving a vaccine dose,” a report by the taskforce says.

Israel has recommended that those who formerly had COVID-19 receive a single vaccine dose.
