Although these symptoms are still possible, research shows they are not the most common signs of COVID-19 today. That is the case with breakthrough COVID-19 cases because they usually come with mild symptoms that last for a short period of time.

A research conducted by the American Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that the common symptoms among the vaccinated individuals are sneezing, headache, sore throat, loss of smell and runny nose. Though some of these symptoms are common for individuals at different vaccination stages, the research indicates that most of the previously common COVID-19 symptoms and signs are likely to be seen in unvaccinated individuals.
