A corona vaccination usually protects against a severe course, not against an illness.
If you are ill, the symptoms apparently vary depending on the vaccination status.
London – A few days ago, the Federal Minister of Health warned of a new corona wave.
"We are clearly at the beginning of an autumn and winter wave," said Karl Lauterbach (SPD) on Friday (September 30) in Berlin.
If this proves to be true, numerous people in this country will become infected with the corona virus, even if they have already received a vaccination.
According to the Federal Ministry of Health's vaccination dashboard (as of September 28), 64.8 million people have received at least one vaccination dose, of which 63.5 million are basic immunized.
51.7 million have received a booster, 8.0 million people have already received a second booster vaccination.
Covid-19 infection: fewer symptoms over a shorter period of time in vaccinated people
The symptoms of Covid-19 infected people seem to differ.
This applies to unvaccinated, single and double vaccinated individuals.
This is the result of the British study "Zoe Covid Symptom Study" (updated September 13, 2022), in which over four million people have already taken part.
Those infected with the coronavirus, regardless of the virus variant, document their signs of illness via smartphone app.
The result is then evaluated by researchers who work at King's College London and London's Guy's Hospital, among others.

According to the study, a fundamental result is that the symptoms in the three different groups - unvaccinated, single-vaccinated, double-vaccinated - do not differ significantly.
However, "fewer symptoms were reported over a shorter period of time by those who had already been vaccinated." This could indicate that their course of the disease is less severe and that they recover more quickly.

Most common symptoms of a Covid 19 infection: Sneezing could be a sign
According to the study, it is curious that vaccinated people who tested positive report sneezing more often than unvaccinated people.
That is why people who have to sneeze frequently after the vaccination should do a corona test.
The persistent cough, which ranks fifth, is no longer the main indicator of Covid disease in those who have been vaccinated twice.

For the five most common symptoms, those that the study describes as “traditional” are missing in all three groups.
These include loss of smell, shortness of breath, and fever.
These are further down the list.
Among the fully vaccinated, loss of smell ranks sixth, fever eighth and shortness of breath 29th.
Among the unvaccinated, loss of smell ranks ninth, and shortness of breath 30th. This suggests, according to the study, "that previously recorded symptoms change with evolving virus variants."
