The vaccine rollout in the United States has been incredibly successful, and according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 182.7 million people have already received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, including about 157.6 million people who have been fully vaccinated by Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine or the two-dose series made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.

But while vaccines undoubtedly give you more protection against COVID-19, you could still contact and pass on the virus, with self-isolation on the cards if you test positive. Cases in the US are continuing to rise, believed to be as a result of the Delta variant first identified in India, so even if you’re one of the lucky ones to have been vaccinated, there are four symptoms you should be on the lookout for.

Data collected by the UK’s Covid Symptom Study found that those who caught Covid despite double vaccination showed four symptoms different to the main ones.

Since the start of the pandemic, it’s been widely understood that the symptoms of Covid are:

  • A new, continuous cough
  • Temperature in excess of 38C
  • Anosmia (loss of smell and/or taste)

Researchers now say that fully vaccinated are mainly experiencing these Covid symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat

ZOE wrote in the study:

Generally, we saw similar symptoms of COVID-19 being reported overall in the app by people who had and had not been vaccinated.

However, fewer symptoms were reported over a shorter period of time by those who had already had a jab, suggesting that they were falling less seriously ill and getting better more quickly.

They added:

Curiously, we noticed that people who had been vaccinated and then tested positive for COVID-19 were more likely to report sneezing as a symptoms compared with those without a jab.

The study urged anyone who may experience sneezing after getting vaccinated to get a Covid test and ensure they’re not positive with the virus.

People who contracted coronavirus after just one dose of the vaccine reported the same four symptoms, but with the addition of a persistent cough.

Chief Scientific Advisor Sir Patrick Vallance warned earlier that the link between cases, hospital admissions and deaths had been “weakened, not broken” by the vaccine rollout.
