Researchers in Norway carried out a study of about 100 guests at a party where there was an outbreak of Ômicron and found nine symptoms that were more common in those who had already been vaccinated against Covid-19.
According to the ‘Independent’ newspaper, from the group of respondents, 66 had confirmed cases of Covid-19 and 15 had possible cases of the virus. Of the 111 participants, 89% received two doses of an mRNA vaccine and none received a booster dose.

According to findings published in the journal of infectious diseases and epidemiology Eurosurveillance, there are nine main symptoms recorded by the group of fully vaccinated participants.
Thus, according to the research, the main symptoms were: cough, runny nose, fatigue, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, fever, nausea and sneezing.
The study also found that coughing, runny nose and fatigue were among the most common symptoms in vaccinated individuals, while sneezing and fever were the least common.
Although the vaccine protects against the most serious risks of the virus, it is still possible to contract Covid-19 even if you are vaccinated with even a booster dose. The mild nature of the symptoms makes it difficult for people to distinguish the virus from the common flu. But according to Tim Spector, responsible for the ZOE Symptom Study App, about 50% of the “’new flu’ today are, in fact, Covid”.
Two signs that you may be infected with Omicron
Experts also suggest that there are two distinct symptoms that could be a sign that a positive test is coming: fatigue and dizziness/feeling faint.
More than just feeling tired, fatigue can translate into body pain, causing sore or weak muscles, headaches, and even blurred vision and loss of appetite.
Angelique Coetzee, a private physician and president of the Medical Association of South Africa, said fatigue was one of the main symptoms of Omicron when the variant first emerged in South Africa.
Dizziness/fainting is the second sign that you may have contracted Omicron. A new report from Germany has suggested that there is a link between fainting and the variant. This comes after doctors in Berlin discovered that Covid-19 was causing recurrent fainting in a 35-year-old patient admitted to hospital. The German newspaper Ärztezeitung said doctors could see a “clear link” between the infection and fainting.
