Covid vaccine trial participants report side-effects

Chennai: Multiple reports have claimed that at least five human trial participants, testing the Covid-19 vaccine candidates of Moderna and Pfizer, experienced exhaustion, fever and headaches for a whole day.

One of the participants woke up in the middle of the night with chills, shaking so hard he cracked a tooth, CNBC reported.

However, they said that the discomfort from the coronavirus vaccine candidates was worth it to protect themselves against the Covid-19 infection.

Moderna and Pfizer had earlier said some participants in their phase one trials experienced mild coronavirus symptoms.
