A Moderna coronavirus vaccine trial participant said he experienced only mild side effects from the vaccine after the company announced its vaccine is nearly 95 percent effective.
Moderna announced its breakthrough results Monday, one week after similar results came from Pfizer and BioNTech.
Jack Morningstar, a volunteer from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” that the reported effectiveness puts it “up there with some of the vaccines that we’re all accustomed to taking like mumps or measles and the vaccines that help eradicate serious diseases that are no longer commonplace.”
The UNC junior said he didn’t think he received the placebo and described his side effects.
“After the first vaccine, I had a little bit of fatigue and some arm pain that lingered for a couple of days,” Morningstar said.
