Omicron BA.5: Nine Symptoms of Covid Affecting Fully Vaccinated People – and Signs You May Have Them

The UK appears to have just ended its fifth wave of Covid-19 infections, although experts still fear another one could arrive this fall when the weather changes unless proper precautions are taken.

In early June, the country saw a 43 percent increase in coronavirus cases, possibly caused by people gathered to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee over a four-day weekend.

Driven by subvariants BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron – a strain that spread so rapidly in the UK in December 2021 and January 2022 before it gradually faded away – cases continued to rise to around 4.6 million by half -July before it started to decline gradually.

While August believes the UK is in a much better place for infection, closer to just 120,000 a day according to the ZOE Health Study, the recent increase has been a timely reminder that Covid has not gone away and that we still need to be vigilant as new . mutations keep popping up all over the world.

The approval of the new Omicron-specific Moderna vaccine is a welcome achievement in the UK and the vaccine could play a significant role in future vaccination plans.

With that in mind, here is an overview of some of the most common symptoms associated with this variant and its offspring when fully vaccinated – and two early warning signs that you may have it.

The most common symptoms in fully vaccinated children

Researchers in Norway conducted a study that interviewed 111 out of 117 guests at the party on November 26, 2021, where the Omicron outbreak broke out.

Of the group interviewed, 66 had definitive cases of Covid and 15 had possible cases of the virus.

Of the 111 participants, 89 percent received two doses of the mRNA vaccine and none received a booster injection.

According to findings published in the journal Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology Euronadzorthere were eight key symptoms experienced by the group of fully vaccinated partygoers.

These were: persistent cough, runny nose, fatigue, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, fever and sneezing.

The study found that coughing, runny nose, and fatigue were among the most common symptoms in vaccinated people, while sneezing and fever were the least common.

Public health experts also added nausea to this list of symptoms in vaccinated people who contracted the Omicron variant.

Although the vaccine protects you against the more serious threats of the virus, it is still possible to catch Covid even if you have both the vaccination and the booster injection.

The mild nature of symptoms makes it difficult for people to tell the difference between the virus and the common cold.

But, according to Professor Tim Spector of the Zoe Covid project, about 50 percent of “new colds” are actually Covid.

Two early warning signs you may have Omicron

Experts also suggest that there are two distinct symptoms that could indicate an impending positive test: fatigue and dizziness or fainting.

Dr. Angelique Coetzee, private practice and president of the South African Medical Association, said: Good morning Great Britain this fatigue was one of the main symptoms of Omicron when the variant broke out in South Africa.

In fact, 40 percent of women reported that they struggled with fatigue from Covid compared to a third of men, according to a WebMD survey that asked users how often they felt fatigue from December 23, 2021 to January 4, 2022.

Dizziness or fainting is the second sign that you may have Omicron.

A report from Germany recently suggested that there might be a link between fainting and Omicron after doctors in Berlin found that Covid caused recurrent dizziness in a 35-year-old patient admitted to the hospital.
