One of the organs most vulnerable to the actions of SARS-CoV-2 is the brain. People with mental illness may be particularly susceptible to the psychiatric effects of COVID-19. I have neglected getting the most recent vaccination. That is extremely dumb of me. After I post this, I'm going to make an appointment to get the most recent vaccine. I can't afford to get COVID. It might ruin my response to antidepressant treatment.

I've had COVID. The fever resolved in days, but the cough lasted for months. Fortunately I did not notice any mental effects.
