I caught covid just before my 35th birthday last April and although I was physically healthy and recovered after a week it has permanently damaged my sense of smell leaving me with a condition called Parosmia where smells are distorted or missing altogether, basically it damaged the olfactory receptors in my nose. It's grown into a huge issue amongst covid survivors now it's become more widespread. You don't want this no matter your age or fitness level .that's the thing, i'm not sure about it. like most people, i've had lots of Vaccines in the past but i've had them without giving it much thought. the one thing putting me off is that it's a brand new vaccine. i'm in my 30s without any health problems.. do i even need it?
having said that several of my family members have had the covid vaccine without any problems.
