16-Year-Old Says It’s Important for People Her Age Be Part of Vaccine Trial

Pfizer announced Wednesday that their COVID-19 vaccine is now 95% effective with “no serious” side effects. The pharmaceutical company also said they will apply for emergency use within days. Kearston Stepenosky, 16, became a guinea pig along with her dad, Dan. “I think it's important that people my age are willing to participate in trials so in the end of the day the efficiency is proven not just for adults but for kids,” Stepenosky said.
