I Volunteered for the COVID-19 Vaccine Human TrialsUpdated: April 22nd, 2021
Five months before any jab would be approved for use, James was vaccinated. He was one of the first 120 volunteers in the first phase of the human trials with Imperial College London.
He kept a video diary and wrote an article to document the journey. This included recording his temperature in an online diary every day, getting used to needles and once panicking the research team by confusing sunburn for a large rash.
