More data continues to come out about new COVID-19 symptoms from patients who have been vaccinated. Specifically, the ZOE COVID Symptom study has been updating its list of symptoms for those who have been vaccinated.
The top 5 COVID-19 symptoms after vaccinations
- Runny nose
- Sore throat
- Loss of smell
Per CNBC, the common symptoms from COVID-19 patients before vaccinations — like anosmia (loss of smell), fever and shortness of breath — were ranked lower on the list. Loss of smell, though still in the top five, was higher in previous rankings, according to CNBC.
- “A persistent cough now ranks at number 8 if you’ve had two vaccine doses, so is no longer the top indicator of having COVID,” according to CNBC.
The increase in sneezing
- “Our data shows 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,” researchers wrote, according to The Hill.
But the researchers said, “It’s important to remember that the link between sneezing and COVID-19 isn’t very strong, so you should stay alert to the 20 symptoms of the disease, whether or not you’ve been vaccinated.”
