Vaccine regrets multiply as Delta surges ‘like a tsunami’ among unvaccinated


Raw Story: As Covid-19 cases surge in parts of the country with low vaccination rates, driven by the highly contagious Delta variant, stories of unvaccinated Americans expressing deep regrets from their deathbeds are spreading across social media, with healthcare workers facing the excruciating task of telling some patients that it’s too late to help them.

On Friday CNN reported the story of Travis Campbell, who has been in a hospital in Virginia for two weeks battling Covid-19—which has caused him to develop pneumonia and left him with a partially collapsed lung—after putting off getting vaccinated not because of stubborn “vaccine hesitancy,” but due to a move and knee surgery.

“I messed up big time, you guys—I didn’t get the vaccine,” 43-year-old Campbell said in a video he posted to Facebook on Wednesday in hopes of convincing people in his circle to get vaccinated.

Campbell’s story follows that of Micheal Freedy, who was not opposed to vaccination in general but wanted to wait until the vaccines had been available for a year to ensure they were safe, and who texted his fiancee, “I should have gotten the damn vaccine” from an intensive care unit in a Las Vegas hospital last month before succumbing to the illness.

Campbell’s illness and Freedy’s death are just two illustrations of the crises healthcare workers are coping with in areas with low vaccination rates, particularly across the South.

  1. What in the world is going on ? Somebody wants badly to scare / intimidate / armtwist / browbeat everyone into taking this shot. It’s resembling the pre-war MSM saturation campaigns where a script has been handed down and talking heads all over the country are using the same phraseology, buzzwords ( “deadbeat” is one of the current ones).
    Does anyone believe the powers that be are concerned in the slightest for our well being ?
    Soon after the 911 dust settled there were those publicly claiming that it was an inside job, a whole truth movement sprang up. This thing has stunk of ulterior motives, hidden agendas from the beginning. Where is the science ? A worldwide pandemic should trigger a thorough, transparent, peer-reviewed analysis of this virus to pin down it’s origin – yet nothing. And now a suspiciously timed, more frightening variant is loosed – still nothing.
    Is no-one elsed BS detector flashing red ?

    • What is going on Keane, is people dying unnecesarily because they are in denial, or rage against the medical community as frauds when they see an opportunity. The body count is showing such people to be a virsus in our midst, the large size version. The disinformation is now border line criminal, and the proof is piling up as the bodies do, and more dying anti-vaxers who thought they were having a good time tweeking the medical community are making their last tweets to relatives and friends to get the shot, while hard core anti-vaxes consider the crazy. It is one thing to not want the vaccine yourself, and I for one would say “thank you and good riddance”, but it is another to promote to others not to, when you have no qualifications other than wanting to be another ‘Mr. Know it All” on the internet, a common afflition these days.
