Here is the latest installment of my experience being in Phase III Human Trials for a COVID Trials of the Novavax Vaccine. Most of the trial has been easy to get shots, (three so far, 5 if you count the two placebo shots) reach out to staff at USF/TGH who are conducting the trial. I have not had any adverse side effects with the first 4 shots (two placebo). The main issue with the first 4 was pain at the injection side and some tiredness, but that could also be because I was up early worried about finding the right place. The 5th shot or booster shot was a little different. The first day my arm hurt really bad, but nothing that would impact my daily life. The first night, I woke up in the middle of the night to use the restroom, but I started shaking so bad, it felt like have a seizure. The shaking was really bad and scared me a little. It passed, I fell back asleep and woke up the next morning. Next morning, I just felt tired with a general feeling of not being well. As the night approached that passed. I felt a ton better and today I feel back to my normal self, other than a headache. I simply treat that with OTC meds. I have been very happy to be a part of these trials knowing that I am doing a small part to help my fellow human being. The trial should be running for at least another 12 months and a few appointments between now and then.

That’s all for now. Take Care!

One thought on “I am boosted! Get boosted too”
  1. I think that was the same day I got my 4th shot of Pfizer. (I asked for AstraZeneca, and my doctor said OK, but the nurse giving the shots didn’t actually read the Rx. Oh, the fun of living in Israel!)
