Fuji TV: "The Prime" Sunday Coverage
Translation of segment:
Jackie, who lived in New York until July and is now at her parents' home in Florida, was vaccinated against the coronavirus by six members of her family from August to September. Jackie, now 24, participates in a new coronavirus vaccine clinical trial with her parents, a younger sister of a medical college student, a younger brother of a high school student, and an 80-year-old grandmother. The opportunity was my experience in NY, and I realized the difficulty and importance of protecting myself as I felt during the explosive spread of infection. I participated to protect myself and my family. "I thought it was more important for my grandmother to be protected from the virus," Jackie said of the vaccine, which could have side effects, and the vaccination of her elderly grandmother. The clinical trial will be vaccinated twice. Report your health weekly and get regular health checkups. Follow-up is 2 years. Three months after vaccination, the family has not changed their physical condition. However, Ashley, Georgia, who was vaccinated, was said to have been tired the next morning. The risk of vaccination was explained in advance. Currently, the Japanese government has agreed to purchase vaccines with three Western pharmaceutical companies. There is a problem with vaccination in Japan, which is targeted for implementation next year. According to US CDC data, some vaccines need to be stored at ultra-low temperatures of minus 70 ° C plus or minus 10 ° C. In ultra-low temperatures, bananas can be used to nail, and rose flowers will shatter.
