Covid symptoms to watch out for if you've had one or two jabs.


Recommended Posts

According to the Zoe app, which is used to track the spread of the virus, the most common symptoms for COVID infection when you've had one jab are headache, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat and a persistent cough. If you are lucky enough to have been double vaccinated, the symptoms are the same, but there isn't a persistent cough in the top five common symptoms, (Yahoo News, Jimmy Nsubuga, 24/6/21, 6:13pm). Something to look out for especially during the current hay fever season where the most common symptoms are headaches, sneezing, sore throat and a runny nose, (I get them all. Or have I got Covid?):blink:

Unless you take an LFD test you won't know :P

We met up with my sister and bil in Germany just before Covid. They were also caravanning there. My bil had severe hay fever, coughing, sneezing, running nose, red eyes. It was so bad he went into a Pharmacie for the best Germanic formula anti-histamine, hay fever analgesic.

 

3 days later my wife and I both caught his ‘hay fever’. 🙄🙄🙄

It's a difficult one for sure.  At my daughter's school kids are being sent home left right & centre for displaying these symptoms and cannot return until tested.  My wife works at a primary school and is seeing similar events.

I believe the sad truth is that we are not out of the woods yet with this pandemic, and I fear that unless or until the world's population have all been inoculated, none of us are safe in the presence of others.

I firmly believe that in addition to having coronavirus jabs, the best thing any of us can do is simply not travel further from our homes than absolutely necessary, and if we do go for a walk or a country drive, to avoid all close contact with others. Now we all know that will not happen in the real world BUT we CAN still help the situation by remaining vigilant and cautious in our actions.

The latest R data shows that we are experiencing another infection peak here in the UK, yet we're one of the countries with the highest proportion of the population having received a vaccine. I do not believe that this is because the vaccines are ineffective but rather that people are still socialising and traveling from home more than is essential. 

Remember that so often the majority suffer from the actions of the minority - driving speed limits are imposed because a minority act recklessly, parking restrictions are enforced because a minority park thoughtlessly, countries have even gone to war because of a selfish despot - and the list goes on . . .

Unfortunately Gordon, you are correct. It was reported this morning that an "anti vax" woman in the USA lost her 58 year old mother to Covid. She has since stated that her family WON'T be having the vaccination because her mother didn't die of Covid, (despite what the medical experts said), she died of "stress and overwork" so nobody is going to "con" her into having the vaccination.

 

They live among us!!!!

I fear that will be a long wait then. Surveys have shown that about one third of the population either rejects the idea of vaccination on principle, can't be bothered or think that the worst is over and reckon that they don't need to be vaccinated any more.

German surveys or worldwide surveys?

There was a survey across the EU. It did show marked differences from country to country though. Of those not getting vaccinated, the southern and eastern Europeans tended to be more of the "can't be bothered" sort, Germans were more of the "worst is over, so no further need" variety. Apparently, up to 50% of those that have had their first jab aren't turning up for appointments for the second one in some parts of the country.

To complement Townie's OP this might be worth a watch 

It explains a bit more about the symptoms as raised by the ZOE App which are very similar to the common cold. which just happens to be a covid virus!!!
