As more people become eligible for COVID-19 vaccination, more questions arise about how the vaccines work and why some people experience side effects. Can vaccinated people still spread COVID to those who are unvaccinated? Why do people who have already had COVID-19 still need to get the vaccine? Do they experience more side effects than people who never had the illness? Is it true that COVID “long haulers” are seeing improvement in symptoms after getting vaccinated — and if so, why?
