The new Zoe COVID Symptom study has identified the most common COVID-19 symptoms for those who are vaccinated against the novel coronavirus.

What are the most common COVID-19 symptoms after vaccination?

The Zoe COVID Symptom study has been reviewing symptoms from people who have gotten COVID-19, including people who got infected with coronavirus variants as well. The report has a list of COVID-19 symptoms that hit the infected people.

So if you get vaccinated, you might still suffer from some symptoms due to COVID-19. It doesn’t protect you entirely. Here’s a breakdown of the most common symptoms if you’re vaccinated.

  • Headache
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Other (loss of smell, shortness of breath, fever, persistent cough)

Symptoms of delta variant

As I wrote for the Deseret News, the same study found that the delta variant can feel “more like a bad cold.” The top symptoms identified for the delta variant included a headache, sore throat and runny nose.

Tim Spector, a professor from King’s College London who led the study, said the typical COVID-19 symptoms are less common with the delta variant. That’s why you don’t see cough, fever and loss of taste and smell dominate these lists.

  • “This variant seems to be working slightly differently,” he said.
