Yes, it appears to have done this.

Have gotten my sense of smell / taste back.

Getting the sense of taste back is nice. Getting the sense of smell back, not so much.

/ maybe I should shower more

Yeah, but then you have to battle The Batman and it turns into a whole thing.

Hey, honestly, if you stay away from the whole "cannibalism" part, he may not look you up in the first place.  Batman watches those homeless *closely.*

Definitely sounds like these covid long-haulers, despite repeated negative covid test, are really still infected.

That was my first thought, but the vaccine wouldn't actually kill viruses... unless the vaccine teaches your immune system to fight the virus in a different (better) way than it learns from the real virus?

That is actually what this vaccine does.  It teaches your cells how to deal/lock up the spike proteins.
That is why you can be vaccinated, still get sick, and still pass it on... and why you need to wear a mask even after you are vaccinated.
The vaccine is like having a Sargent teach you how to fight, not an army to keep you from being invaded, and you could pass it along whilst dealing with it.

Sure, they are testing negative using the Nasal swab... Maybe start testing them the Otherway, like they've been doing in China... It's evidently more accurate.  Bit of a pain in the ass tho
