Experts have said, time and again, that catching the virus after getting both inoculations is still very plausible. However, researchers have noticed that the symptoms differ greatly from a fully vaccinated COVID-positive individual to that of an unvaccinated infected person—in both strength and duration.
Symptoms in fully vaccinated COVID patients
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the most recorded COVID symptoms have been fever, loss of smell and taste, fatigue, headache, and cough. But now that people are getting vaccinated, these side effects have been varying depending on whether or not you’ve been jabbed, and how many jabs you’ve gotten so far.
Research conducted by the ZOE COVID Symptom study has discovered that fully vaccinated people who are infected with COVID have been dealing with far lessserious symptoms like headache, runny nose, and sore throat. The patients were also recovering at a much faster speed than usual. The team wrote in their study:
Generally, we saw similar symptoms of Covid-19 being reported overall in the app by people who had and hadn’t 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 also revealed that more and more double-jabbed COVID patients have strangely recorded sneezing as one of their symptoms. 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 symptom compared with those without a jab.
In light of this new information, experts are now recommending everyone who has been sneezing after inoculation to get tested for COVID-19. Even a fully vaccinated person who is COVID-positive needs to self-isolate so they don’t spread the virus to other people.
