British researchers have identified four signs of COVID-19 that are most common in vaccinated patients. Headaches, runny nose, sneezing, and sore throat are common in patients who receive both vaccines, according to the ZOE COVID Symptom Study, the largest app for researching and tracking Coronavirus symptoms. Those who have received only the first dose of the vaccine, in addition to the four listed symptoms, also have a cough.
The researchers emphasized that the vaccine does not provide one hundred percent protection against coronavirus, but significantly reduces the risk of a severe course of the disease. Thus, the former “traditional” symptoms of the disease – loss of smell, shortness of breath, and fever – are quite rare in vaccinated patients.
Curiously, the reports that people who had been vaccinated and then tested positive for COVID-19 were more likely to report sneezing as a symptom compared with those without a jab.
“If you’ve been vaccinated and start sneezing a lot without an explanation, you should get a COVID test, especially if you are living or working around people who are at greater risk from the disease,” says the app guide.
Sneezing tanks higher than Persistent cough as a symptom of the people who have been vaccinated just once.
These results are based on vaccine records and daily symptom reports by the people who give feedback on the app.
