A volunteer of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine in Austin, Texas talked to “Fox & Friends” about his experience in the clinical trial.
According to the company, its vaccine has been found to be 90% effective against COVID-19. More than 43,000 people are being tested around the world.
Glenn Deshields, who volunteered for the trial, wrote on Twitter: “My Grandad told me that one of his first memories was of bells ringing to mark the end of WWI. If true, this is that kind of moment. I am honored to be a part of this trial.”
“I had some side effects,” Deshields told co-host Ainsley Earhardt. “A lot of injection site pain … I haven’t had coronavirus, so that’s a good thing.”
He also mentioned that the side effects after the first shot “were a little more severe than I thought.”
“Basically, I had a headache and a lot of fatigue, injection site pain … maybe three to four days,” he said. “The second one, it was similar but it was much more muted. It wasn’t as strong. I think I took some Advil and they basically cleared up.”
He recommends that people get it as soon as they can.
