“I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections,” wrote Cobia, a hospitalist at Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham. “One of the last things they do before they’re intubated is beg me for the vaccine. I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late.”
“A few days later when I call time of death,” continued Cobia on Facebook, “I hug their family members and I tell them the best way to honor their loved one is to go get vaccinated and encourage everyone they know to do the same.”
“They cry. And they tell me they didn’t know. They thought it was a hoax. They thought it was political. They thought because they had a certain blood type or a certain skin color they wouldn’t get as sick. They thought it was ‘just the flu’. But they were wrong. And they wish they could go back. But they can’t.
Saltine Christ on a Cracker!
I don’t care who you are, where you come from, what your background is, etc.; if you think COVID-19 is a hoax—that it’s political—then you forfeit your place on this planet. Hundreds of thousands of people who did not have the benefit of vaccination have died. Did you watch a years worth of people dying around the world and think, “Nah, that’s not COVID, everyone must have just had bad salmon pâté!”
To die of COVID now because you made a conscious decision to decline vaccination is an act with which there is no defense. And none of you will be missed.➵
