Thankful: 82-year-old volunteers for COVID-19 vaccine trial
82-year-old Mary Jo Moynihan volunteered for a COVID-19 vaccine trial. She said, about 49 years ago, volunteers in an insulin medical trial ended up saving the life of her daughter.
Today was a perfect day to make stew so Mary Jo Moynahan didn't hesitate. But for most of her 82 years, she hasn't hesitated much. So when Pfizer was looking for volunteers to test their new Kobe vaccine, she raised her hand. I think one of two things.

If I died, that was one of the side effects listed. What's his death? But I'm not afraid
