COVID-19 Vaccine Trial Patients Report Intense Side Effects

In recent weeks, at least 5 volunteers have publicly reported intense side effects from coronavirus vaccines made by Moderna and Pfirzer.

Luke Hutchison, a 44 year-old man from Utah, got his first shot of Moderna’s vaccine on August 18. He developed a low fever for several days.

After his second shot on September 15, he said he was “bed bound” with a high fever over 101ºF, shakes, chills, a severe headache, and shortness of breath.

He said the pain in his arm where he got the vaccine felt like a “goose egg on my shoulder” and he had trouble sleeping that night. The symptoms only lasted 12 hours, but he said he was surprised by their intensity and wrote on Twitter that it was like “full on COVID-like symptoms.”

There are currently at least 41 vaccines against COVID-19 undergoing human trials around the world, but only four U.S.-backed drug-makers’ vaccines are in phase-three clinical trials.

Those four drug-makers are Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson. Clearing phase-three clinical trials is the final step before they are approved by the FDA for distribution in the U.S.

In September, AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine trial in the U.K. was paused after one participant developed a severe and unexplained neurological illness.

A source told The New York Times that the person was diagnosed with transverse myelitis, which is a serious inflammatory condition in the spinal cord that can be caused by viral infections. Transverse myelitis is also a known side effect of vaccines.
