A recent study published in Pulmonary Circulation assesses changes in oxygen extraction following post-acute sequelae of SARS-Cov-2 infection (PASC) syndrome, or “long COVID.” PASC may affect half of patients who recover from COVID-19. One debilitating hallmark is a persistent decrease in exercise tolerance.

For fully vaccinated Americans, the risk of being hospitalized or dying from Covid-19 is low — much lower than the risk for unvaccinated people. But in those rare cases when a fully vaccinated person gets infected, data suggests it's older adults and those with multiple underlying medical conditions who are most at risk of serious illness.

These patients tended to be older—between 65 and 95 with a median age of 80.5—and had preexisting comorbidities, such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. A subset of patients was also on immunosuppressive drugs that may affect vaccine efficacy.
