Some people who have suffered from lingering and often debilitating symptoms months after their initial bout with the virus say they are finding relief after getting vaccinated, puzzling health experts.

Survivor Corps, a patient advocacy group for people with so-called long Covid, recently surveyed nearly 900 members and found 41% reported slight relief to full recovery shortly after getting the shots.

The World Health Organization estimates about 1 in 10 Covid patients experience persistently ill health 12 weeks after getting the virus.

Researchers at the University of Washington published data in February that found a third of patients reported ongoing symptoms, including fatigue, shortness of breath and sleep disorders, that persisted for as long as nine months.

He said felt his long Covid symptoms had completely lifted about three weeks after he got his first shot.

Iwasaki told CNBC she plans to conduct a study, in collaboration with Survivor Corps, analyzing the blood samples of long Covid patients before and after getting vaccinated

and I'm hearing every day from people who are feeling better from getting the vaccine," she said
