"Stella Sexton. How in the world did you get involved with this In the first place Like a lot of us. I was sitting at home and staying at home and doing everything I was supposed to do shopping for my elderly relatives. Including my grand parents who are in their nineties and they're in a retirement community that has had Kobe deaths and first I've been terrified for them, and I want to be able to see them and hug them again. So I was sitting at home, and I saw on my health systems website that they were enrolling trial volunteers to University of Pennsylvania Hospital, and so I just clicked it and email them because I felt like I had to do something. You felt a duty of some type. Help me understand that a little bit. Well, you know, there's a lot of suffering going on in a lot of people that I know that have been affected by this, but just to give you one example my my grandfather's 93 when he was a little kid, he actually had been quarantined for three months because he had hurt USCIS. And of course, there was no vaccine for it, then. Well, here we are over 80 years later, and my kids have been out of school for three months and my grandpas back in quarantine. It's 2020 and we need to fix this. And the only way that we're going to fix this rapidly is of people who are healthy and who have the ability to do so step up and participate in these trials. All right, first. Let's see. First does still have a right. You got about a month ago, a second dose yesterday. How has this process been going? And how are you feeling? I feel fine. Be honest with you. Maybe after the first dose. I felt a tiny bit of fatigue. But I mean, I still went about my day that everything normally I feel fine. I have to say that the researchers that have worked with me at the hospital University, Pennsylvania, They have been phenomenal. They're so caring You have a whole appointment? That's just about your informed consent and 22 pages and they'd go over everything that could possibly happen and make sure that you understand what you're consenting to. There's another appointment. That's an extremely thorough Physical, most thorough physical I've ever had in my life. What work everything, and then you don't get to the vaccination until that third appointment Once you've cleared everything else, So I just want people to know that if they had seen what I've seen, of course, I don't know whether the vaccine will work. But I can tell you that these scientists are working very hard and I feel that they're extremely trustworthy and really putting Our safety is the trial volunteers. First last thing quickly the kids where they think about what Mom was doing. Well, the kids were proud of me. They know that vaccines are important course they're fully vaccinated. You know, First they were a little worried about my safety, but when I explained some things to them They were really excited. They're proud. They're telling their friends and they both separately asked me if there was gonna be a trial for kids because they want to help Tio. Good luck to you and your family down.
