• The couple’s decision to join the clinical study turned from uninterested to interested as more news about the benefits of vaccination came out.
• The clincher to them was when the vaccine brand was granted an emergency use authorization by the US Food and Drug Administration.
• They finally decided to join because study participants will be closely monitored for the next two years.
• The preparation process included a tutorial which gave detailed instructions on how to use the app for the regular and bi-weekly reporting; what to do when one develops symptoms that may be related to the COVID-19; how to get one’s temperature reading, pulse rate and oxygen level using the oximeter; and how to use the nasal swab and saliva testing kits.
