How do I know if I have long COVID?
Getting infected with COVID-19 can cause some people to experience health problems that won’t go away. This is called long COVID.
Long COVID can make people to feel unwell for many weeks, or months, and even after they no longer have COVID-19.
Some symptoms of long COVID include:

- problems with memory and concentration.
COVID-19 vaccines can help reduce the chance of experiencing long COVID. Make sure you keep up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines to help protect yourself from long COVID.
