STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Just because you’re fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) doesn’t mean you can’t contract the virus and experience symptoms, though they may be different than those who are not inoculated.

Although the approved vaccines are all highly effective in preventing severe illness and hospitalization from the coronavirus, the possibility of breakthrough infections -- or infections involving fully vaccinated individuals -- remains a cause of concern.

The ZOE COVID symptom study, an ongoing coronavirus study in which patients use a mobile app to submit their symptoms for analysis, found that the top five symptoms reported by patients vary based on their vaccination status.

Here’s a look at the five most common symptoms reported by fully vaccinated individuals who test positive for the coronavirus.

  1. Headache
  2. Runny nose
  3. Sneezing
  4. Sore throat
  5. Loss of smell

While these symptoms were all reported by fully vaccinated individuals, those with two doses of the coronavirus vaccine were less likely to suffer from these symptoms for an extended period of time.

“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,” according to the study.

Notably absent from the list of most common symptoms among the fully vaccinated are fever, persistent cough and shortness of breath -- three symptoms that were widespread during the onset of the pandemic when vaccines were not yet available.

Also of note is the fact that sneezing was listed as the third most common symptom among the fully vaccinated despite not being listed on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) COVID-19 symptom list.
