A corona vaccination usually protects against a severe course, not against a disease. If you are sick, symptoms apparently vary depending on vaccination status.
London – A few days ago the Federal Minister of Health warned of a new corona wave. “We are clearly at the start of an autumn and winter wave,” said Karl Lauterbach (SPD) on Friday September 30 in Berlin.
If this turns out to be true, many people in this country will be infected with the corona virus, even if they have already been vaccinated. According to the Federal Ministry of Health’s vaccination dashboard (as of September 28), 64.8 million people have received at least one dose of vaccination, of which 63.5 million are basic immunized. 51.7 million have received a reminder, 8.0 million people have already received a second reminder.
Covid-19 infection: fewer symptoms over a shorter period of time in vaccinated people
The symptoms of people infected with Covid 19 seem to differ. This applies to unvaccinated, single and double vaccinated people. This is the result of the British study “Zoe Covid Symptom Study” (updated September 13, 2022), in which more than four million people have already taken part. People infected with the coronavirus, regardless of the variant of the virus, document their signs of illness via a smartphone app. The result is then evaluated by researchers who work among others at King’s College London and Guy’s Hospital London.
According to the study, a fundamental finding is that the symptoms in the three different groups – unvaccinated, single vaccinated, double vaccinated – did not differ significantly. However, “fewer symptoms were reported over a shorter period of time by those who had previously been vaccinated.” This could indicate that their disease course is less severe and they are recovering more quickly.

Most common symptoms of a Covid 19 infection: sneezing could be a sign
Curiously, vaccinated people who tested positive reported sneezing more often than unvaccinated people, according to the study. That is why people who have to sneeze frequently after vaccination should take a corona test. Persistent cough, which ranks fifth, is no longer the main indicator of Covid disease in those who have been vaccinated twice.
Ten foods that lower blood pressure
For the five most common symptoms, those that the study calls “traditional” are missing in all three groups. These include loss of smell, shortness of breath and fever. These are further down the list. Among fully vaccinated people, loss of smell ranks sixth, fever eighth and shortness of breath 29th.
Among the unvaccinated, loss of sense of smell ranks ninth and shortness of breath ranks 30. This suggests, according to the study, “that previously recorded symptoms change with the evolution of virus variants.”
