If I were you I'd worry about lung function.  That is something you might want to speak with a doctor about.

I think the individual risk of a COVID vaccine is probably pretty minor, however it still remains to be seen how long term repeated use will change things and it wouldn't surprise me if some people had long term health complications stemming from them.  That said, given your persistent symptom you may indeed be a case where COVID has caused persistent damage.
In the hospital I was told I have some lung scarring, not sure if that heals or not. If I don't get back to precovid cardio levels in the spring I may see if I can get another xray.

For hospitalized pneumonia patients it is not unheard of for it to be 6 months or even longer to regain full function. The Covid pneumonia was the tough part, it's bilateral.

I know I have lung damage from being a smoker for many years. When they did my my lung function test years ago as part of my sleep study, they told me my lung volume indicated I was a smoker but my good 02 uptake indicated I was an ex smoker.

I still have a little frog in the throat but have no problem knocking out a 20 mile bike ride on the road at a decent clip. My mountain biking isn't nearly as strong as it was, but the loss of muscle mass is probably the main cause of that, you need strong legs to climb hills.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

Here is a test of my "lung function" I took of my "own design." It has been 4 months since I got over the Covid and went off the supplemental O2 and I am able to hold my breath for more than a minute. That may have more to do with lung capacity than function, but that is the case. Those of you who have had the Covid might want to do that "self test" and chime in. It might be interesting to compare those results with some of you who have not had the Covid.

To Save Time, Biden To Ship 500 Million Free Masks Directly To Landfill

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The White House is releasing new details surrounding President Biden’s plan to send free facemasks to every American. In an effort to save time, the free masks will be shipped directly to landfills nationwide.

Quote
At press time, the White House was denying reports that Biden’s plan to purchase 500 million facemasks was in any way related to his son Hunter being named chairman of the board of a large Ukrainian facemask conglomerate.
