The number of COVID-19 cases is once again on the rise and some experts are even suggesting that this is an ‘early hint’ of a fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic. The only relief is that a large number of people are fully vaccinated. Being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 reduces the risk of severe disease and those infected may not need hospitalization or ICU. This significantly reduces mortality. However, getting vaccinated doesn’t mean that you will not get infected with COVID-19 again. With the emergence of newer strains of Omicron, the risk of getting infected seems to have increased.

Most of the time, people who are fully vaccinated don’t even realize that they have been infected with COVID-19. This is because the symptoms may progress a bit differently than in unvaccinated people.

Symptoms of COVID-19 infection may be milder in those who are fully vaccinated and experts noted that during the third wave of coronavirus, sore throat was the only visible symptom while other people had cold, cough, fever, body pain along with sore throat.

According to experts, those who are fully vaccinated but have weak immunity due to various medical conditions are at the risk of breakthrough COVID-19 infection.

Experts said that common symptoms among fully vaccinated people during the third wave were runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fatigue, sneezing and fatigue. They assured that the risk of serious coronavirus infection is very low when it comes to those who are fully vaccinated and don’t have any chronic health conditions.

They also said that those who are fully vaccinated generally don’t have any serious long-Covid symptoms such as pounding heartbeat, pneumonia, memory problems, shortness of breath, sleep issues, gut problems, extreme fatigue and anxiety.

However, they emphasize that even fully vaccinated people must strictly follow the COVID-19 norms of social distancing, wearing masks, sanitizing hands, and must take the booster dose when eligible.
