The COVID-19 pandemic has taken away our security to go outside of our houses without the risk of catching a deadly disease. As this novel coronavirus that originated from Wuhan, China is known to be highly contagious, strict health and safety measures must be observed at all times, not just in public spaces, but also in our own home. We just could not afford having our loved ones getting the disease that up to now has no known cure. It is better safe to stay indoors and avoid contact with our relatives and friends to be safe.
Unfortunately, this kind of living situation costs our world a huge price. Aside from the mental and emtoional tolls that this pandemic is causing to us, strict lockdowns also caused the closure of several businesses and the dipping of the economy. This bring us back to the dark periods of our history, and this year is said to be comparable enough to the years of the Second World War.
Thus, our only hope now lies with an effective COVID-19 vaccine, which will give the entire world population an immunity against this strange illness. On our way there, human trials must be performed first to see if the version of the vaccine is already working.
However, if you ever decide to become one of the subjects of the clinical trials for the vaccine, you must know these important things to take care of your own body.
Pharmaceuitical companies must be very sure that their vaccines work efficiently against the disease that they are targetting to erase. Another important objective is that the vaccine should have no adverse effects on humans. Hence, clinical trials on willing human participants must be performed first. Perhaps, some criminal lawyers may think about signing up for this.
A volunteer should check with the developers of this vaccine under study if he or she is physically fit for whatever effects that vaccine will bring to the body. It is possible that the subjects will develop short-term upper respiratory symptoms that are mild and will eventually go away. However, it is best to know if the subject can carry on with such effects.
It is also best if the subject will have constant communication with those in charge with the clinical trials. Be sure to have a handbook with you to list down all the side effects that you are experiencing after taking a shot of the vaccine under trial. You can also update the social media with the results of the vaccine trials, if there is anything important that you believe you should make everyone know.
