COVID-19 Deaths are constantly rising in the USA, particularly among unvaccinated individuals, while doctors have been struggling to convince citizens to get vaccinated.
Brytney Cobia, a doctor from Alabama, made a touching Facebook post last week, promoting a possibly life-saving pro-vax message.
The message is loud and clear – Get vaccinated before it is too late!
“I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections. One of the last things they do before they’re intubated is begging me for the vaccine. I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late,” she said.
She also added how, a few days later, when a patient is declared dead, she hugs their family members and tells them that the best way of honoring the memory of their lost one is to get vaccinated and promote vaccines.
Additionally, Cobia mentioned how people say that they didn’t know about the vaccines or the virus or thought it was all a big hoax.
Last Thursday, Governor Kay Ivey of Alabama addressed the situation regarding the vaccination status of her state.
She said that citizens are “supposed to have common sense.”
She added that at this point, it is “time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks”, as the unvaccinated individuals are pushing the death tallies to new records.
A New York Times tracker shows that Alabama registers the fourth-lowest vaccination rate across the nation.
Dr. Cobia’s Web MD page has been swarmed by hateful messaging from anti-vaxxers or maliciously intended individuals.
Unfortunately, the Delta variant took the nation by surprise and currently accounts for most new infections.
