The best way to protect yourself from getting long COVID is prevention.

While anyone can get long COVID, studies show you’re more likely to contract it if you’ve had a severe case of COVID.

So, the best way to avoid long COVID is to NOT have a severe case in the first place. And the best way to prevent a severe case is to keep up to date with your vaccinations, including boosters.
