It is likely that the camera is OK, at least for now, if your IBIS is working currently. We don't actually know what Nikon is fixing or which part they change, except that it has to do with the IBIS. It may be so that the effected cameras are not having as efficient IBIS as the others, but no need to take a vacation trip and leave the camera at home in the hands of Nikon.

This is my sense of what the problem is like, based on my own experience compared to others who feel IBIS is working beter.

OTOH, if anyone tests their affected camera and sees that IBIS is simply not working, that would be interesting.... (I could hear it click on and off, but didn't actually test it)

Affected camera:

Through EVF (zooming all the way in):
IBIS on: Can read the whole label of a jar some feet away

IBIS off: Can read the 'head line', hardly the rest of the label

IBIS on or off: headline clear, text too, but not as clear as through EVF
IBIS on: headline clear, text not so much
IBIS off: headline readable but smudged, text not

IBIS on: headline clear, text not so much
IBIS on: smudged, nothing readable
