A doctor is bragging on social media about letting her four-year-old child be used as a human guinea pig for testing the Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine in extremely young children.

The mother, Doctor Jill E. Weatherhead, is the director of the Pediatric Tropical Medicine clinic at Texas Children’s Hospital and the Adult Tropical Medicine clinic in Harris Health System in Houston.

“Today my 4yo had the privilege of participating in the Pfizer-BioNtech COVID19 vaccine clinical trial @TexasChildrens for 2-4yo,” Weatherhead wrote on Twitter, along with a photo of her bandaged child’s arm. “We are thankful to the scientist, pharmacists, & others involved in the vaccine development process for working to keep our children safe.”

Naturally, she was dragged on Twitter for experimenting with her child’s health when there is no real risk of the virus in children this age.
