My husband travels a lot for work, and he has asthma.


My husband and I both participated in the vaccine trials – Savannah was the largest trial site in the country. My husband travels a lot for work, and he has asthma. It was really scary to get on an airplane at the height of the pandemic, but if he doesn’t travel, we don’t pay our bills. He enrolled first, and luckily he got the vaccine and not the placebo.

Once we saw what a great experience he had, I decided to enroll too. I also was lucky enough to get the real thing, and that made a huge difference in my life a few months later when my elderly dad got Covid and I was able to visit him without worrying about catching Covid and bringing it home to our son.

We are so thankful to Dr. Paul Bradley, the entire staff at Meridian Research, and all of the people who worked to make the vaccine a reality.
