THE top five most-common Covid symptoms fully jabbed Brits have seen in the last 30 days have been revealed.
It comes as cases in double-vaccinated people have risen – although this is largely to do with cases remaining high and so many people now jabbed.
The ZOE Symptom Study App, where Brits log daily symptoms, found most people who caught the virus recently have suffered with a runny nose, headache, sneezing, sore throat and loss of smell.
Professor Tim Spector, lead scientist on the study, said: “Keep them in mind and keep away from other people if you’ve got them.
“Cases are likely to remain high for the next few weeks or even possibly months.
“This means your risk of infection is high and even if you’ve been double vaccinated it’s really important you watch out for any new symptoms because we can see the longer it goes from your time of vaccination the less effective these vaccines are.”
He also warned vaccination immunity could be waning in the more vulnerable groups who had their jabs a while ago.
Prof Spector said: “It looks like the younger ages are dropping slightly and the older ages seem to be increasing slightly and the older ages generally are the fully vaccinated groups.
“While vaccines aren’t working as well as we hoped in terms of stopping infections that are working in stopping severe infections and hospitalisations.
“Having double vaccination doesn’t mean you can’t get infected and that’s going to get increasingly likely as the time since your vaccination increases.”
The NHS still only lists the original three Covid symptoms of a cough, fever and loss of taste or smell.
If Brits are suffering these symptoms, they must get a PCR test under official NHS guidance.
But experts have long called for the Government to update the list – so that Brits get a PCR test if they suffer other symptoms.
Dozens more symptoms are now associated with having the virus, with the change in symptoms down to new variants and millions now being vaccinated.
It comes as an expert warned today high Covid cases and deaths are “very worrying”.
Professor Peter Openshaw said the large numbers are even more concerning given it’s not winter yet – when things are expected to get worse.
He said “we just don’t really know what’s going to happen” as winter approaches.
Yesterday it was reported another 111 people died, the Government said, while there were 33,904 new lab-confirmed cases in the UK.
