The second infection if you are vaccinated/boosted is likely to be less severe. The imaging test may be repeated if you experience symptoms such as shortness of breath. Monitor temperature, breathing and oxygen saturation. Continue to follow your pulmonary function tests with and without a bronchodilator and please discuss whether a DLCO is useful in following your course w your PCP.

Omicron variant less likely cause severe pulmonary illness and clotting issue especially you have natural immunity with memory B and T cells although the naturalizing antibody (anti-spike antibody) is no longer present after one year.
