Those who are vaccinated against Covid are usually protected from a severe course. Vaccinated people can still get Covid-19. As a large study shows, symptoms occur with a different frequency in vaccinated people than in unvaccinated.

The number of people vaccinated against Corona is increasing day by day. In most countries, however, immunizations are not yet sufficient to achieve herd immunity. 

Many people continue to be infected with the coronavirus, and in many countries, the number of infections is increasing despite the advancing vaccinations. And: Even those who have already been vaccinated can become infected and contract Covid-19 with mild symptoms. 

Different Covid symptoms in vaccinated and unvaccinated people

However, the symptoms of vaccinated people seem to differ in their severity from those of unvaccinated people. At least this is what the world’s largest symptom study for Covid-19 from Great Britain suggests. 

In the “Zoe Covid Symptom Study”, people infected with Coronavirus continuously document their signs of illness in an app, a total of more than four million people have already taken part. 

The documentation was then examined by British scientists, including those from the renowned King’s College London.

They found that the symptoms are mostly similar in both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. In particular, however, they differ in their frequency between people who have been vaccinated once, twice or not at all.

The 5 most common symptoms in unvaccinated people are:

  1. headache
  2. Sore throat
  3. Runny nose
  4. fever
  5. Persistent cough

“If you haven’t been vaccinated, the symptoms are similar to traditional ones,” the scientists explain. 

These “traditional” Covid symptoms, which were identified at the beginning of the pandemic, include persistent coughs and fever.

Loss of taste and smell has long been considered the main symptoms of Covid-19. According to the researchers, this now fell to 9th place. Shortness of breath, also a traditional symptom, even fell to 30th place. This suggests that the most common symptoms changed with the developing variants of the virus.

The study names the 5 most common symptoms in people who have just been vaccinated:

  1. headache
  2. Runny nose
  3. Sore throat
  4. Sneeze
  5. Persistent cough

According to scientists, the ranking of the symptoms changes after a vaccine dose. The persistent cough is still among the top 5. 

But: “In the ranking, it is still under the sneeze and the runny nose. We had previously assumed that these symptoms had nothing to do with an infection. “

The 5 Most Common Symptoms in fully vaccinated

  1. headache
  2. Runny nose
  3. Sneeze
  4. Sore throat
  5. Loss of smell

Even after the second dose of vaccine, the scientists found differences in the symptoms and their frequency. “Oddly enough, we found that people who were vaccinated and then tested positive were more likely to report sneezing as a symptom than people who were not vaccinated.”

Other symptoms such as shortness of breath, on the other hand, were ranked 29th and fever ranked 12. Even long-lasting coughs were no longer one of the top symptoms; it was only ranked 8th among people who had been fully vaccinated.

According to the experts, anyone who has been fully vaccinated and starts sneezing a lot without explanation should therefore take a corona test. This applies in particular to people who live or work near people who are at higher risk for the disease. Those affected should also isolate themselves first to be on the safe side.
