Affected persons can present a very heterogeneous picture of symptoms: Headaches, dizziness, nausea, hair loss, impotence, eye diseases, memory disorders, numbness or movement disorders/paralysis can paint the picture. Likewise, cardiovascular problems, thrombosis or chronic fatigue states can occur. This makes a clear differential diagnosis and differentiation from other diseases all the more difficult.
In their distress, more and more people are turning to the two contact points for post-vac cases in Germany: the special outpatient clinic at the University Hospital in Marburg and the neurological post-COVID-19 consultation at the Charité University Hospital in Berlin. According to Prof. Schieffer, the director in charge of the Marburg special outpatient clinic, there is currently a waiting list of more than 1,800 people affected (as of 07/22).
The question of how many people are actually affected throughout Germany is unfortunately difficult to answer at present, or perhaps not (yet) at all. But even if there are only very few, these people should also receive help. They should not be left without a contact person.
