December 8th – A nurse in California, USA, said she suspected that she might be infected with the novel coronavirus after participating in a clinical trial of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine.
Kristen Choi, an assistant professor at the UCLA School of Nursing, signed up for a double-blind trial of the coronavirus vaccine in August, the New York Post reported.
Christine wrote in a paper published in the American Journal of Internal Medicine: “As a practicing nurse, it feels like a privilege for me to volunteer to participate in clinical trials, and I still have a 50% chance of vaccination early, which is very inhalation. Gravitation.
Christine believes that even with professional medical training, she is still not prepared for the physical reaction after two doses of the vaccine. She feels that the side effects of the vaccine are huge, including fever, chills and muscle pain. Christine said that after the first injection, although she had some pain, she “did not notice any abnormality”.
But after the second injection, serious side effects began to appear. “The injection position of the arm is very painful, much worse than the first time. At the end of the day, I feel dizzy, cold, nausea and have a cracked headache.” In addition, she has experienced “fever and cold”.
On the night of the second injection, she went to bed early. When I woke up for the first time in the middle of the night, I found that my fever was 37.4 degrees low. When I woke up at 5:30 a.m. for the second time, I found that my temperature was 40.5 degrees.
Christine was very scared when she found out that she had a fever. But a nurse in the laboratory told her: “Many volunteers will respond after the second injection.” Fortunately, a day later, except for the lump at the injection site of the arm, all the symptoms of Christine disappeared. Christine believes that the relevant researchers are obliged to inform volunteers about the side effects of the vaccine.
