The success of the Covid vaccine can not be underestimated with both hospitalisations and deaths significantly down from any previous wave during the pandemic.
Over 46 million people in the UK have now received there first vaccination with a staggering 37 million double jabbed.
Daily cases of infection also appear to be on the down turn with the number of positive cases reducing each day over the last week.
However, scientists have urged caution as infection levels may be low due to a natural firebreak emerging from pupils being on holiday and the consequences of the full opening on July 19 are yet to be seen.
While being vaccinated reduces the chances that you will end up in hospital or on a ventilator it is still possible to have received both jabs and get infected. It is also possible to pass the infection onto others too.
New research from the ZOE Covid Symptom study found that vaccinated people who caught the virus reported 'only' one coronavirus symptom which differed from the main ones, reports the Daily Record.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the main signs that you might have contracted Covid have been a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
But researchers discovered that sneezing was the "only" symptom which was more commonly reported in vaccinated people with Covid-19", according to the King’s College London study in May.

Other common symptoms in vaccinated people were:
- Runny nose
- Sore throat
Scientists also found that people who were jabbed and tested positive had milder symptoms compared those were unvaccinated.
Researchers analysed data from participants logging their symptoms, tests and vaccines on the UK ZOE COVID Symptom Study app.
They examined 2,278 adults who tested positive after vaccination and compared them to both vaccinated adults who tested negative and unvaccinated adults who tested positive.
They wrote in the study: "Generally, we saw similar symptoms of Covid-19 being reported overall in the app by people who had and hadn’t been vaccinated.
"However, fewer symptoms were reported over a shorter period of time by those who had already had a jab, suggesting that they were falling less seriously ill and getting better more quickly."
They added: "Curiously, we noticed that people who had been vaccinated and then tested positive for COVID-19 were more likely to report sneezing as a symptom compared with those without a jab."
They urged anyone who might experience sneezing after getting a jab to get tested for Covid-19 to make sure they have not contracted the virus.
