Anyone else find the messaging around "breakthrough" Covid cases a little hyperbolic? I'm double vaxxed-at this point I don't care if I get Covid as long as I don't get sent to the hospital. I don't even care if I'm sick in bed for 1-2 days, it's happened before.

COVID can have long term effects

likesmart

Depends. Having some friends and family with long haul COVID including some serious heart issues due to it… scares the crap out of me. Also it’s not hyperbolic when the whole point is one new case could cause 20 more. So understanding breakthroughs for particularly vulnerable pops is important.

Mix and mixed symptom levels.

I’m more worried about long Covid symptoms rather than being out of commission for a few days. The long-term symptoms (especially brain fog and loss of taste) could affect my day-to-day in the future, and that scares me.

I had covid and I have long term effects from a mild case (pre vax). I wouldn’t be as scared to get it again now that I have the vaccine. I haven’t been hearing as much about long term covid effects recently but I have a lot of unanswered questions about my symptoms. It seems like no one really knows anything still.

So I don’t think it’s hyperbolic. Also I think there’s a lot more to learn bc our medical resources were pretty strained treating severe cases. Many mild cases weren’t really being acknowledged.

Yeah the “breakthrough” term does not hold a lot of weight. I know dozens of people who still have tested positive for Covid despite being vaccinated. This definition of a vaccine hasn’t stopped the spread as we all hoped. I would change the messaging of a “breakthrough” case as someone who is vaccinated and became hospitalization.

I don’t care about myself getting sick. I care about getting at-risk family members sick, both mine and other people’s. That’s why people are rightfully stressing about it right now.

Double vaccinated and got Covid. 1 month later had to go to the hospital with a new heart condition I have never had before. Former D1 athlete, still in shape, etc etc.

I am still going through tests and having to manage it with medicine. Hopefully it was just a 1 time thing but scared the crap out of me. Also in my 30s.

This crap is no joke man and I wouldn’t be so easy to dismiss it as “I don’t care if I get it at this point”. Its all fun and games until you are hooked up to a gazillion monitors m, everything beeping like crazy, and the nurses asking you if you have everything and all your papers in order

Pretty sure. 8 months since the last dose. Also, after a couple Olympic triathlons had a physical including an EKG. Everything normal. Fast forward to a week after covid, which got me pretty bad, and in the hospital with arritmia and atrial fibrillation. Crazy heart rate while lying down when normally is around 60 and 50 to 55 while sleeping. Almost had to had an invasive intervention bc was not reaction to the medicine until finally the last cocktail worked.

Correlation is not causation but definitely, at least for me, there is something there.

It's also gives rise to more cases which prolongs this whole thing.

Also Omicron can pretty effect get around 2 shots but can't get get around 3 that well so you may want to get the booster. (Go to any CVS or Walgreens in and out in less than 5 mins)

Most Omicron breakthrough cases have been very mild. And you do understand that Covid will always be with us, so not sure what you mean by "prolong". Even the descendants of the 1918 flu are still with us (H1N1).
