A doctor in Arkansas, heartbroken by what he’s seeing in the COVID ward – the needless suffering and deaths of people who are unvaccinated – produced a video, posted on the hospital’s website – trying to convince those who are on the fence to get their shots.
Dr. Michael Bolding told CNN this is no longer a disease of the elderly and frail.
“You can’t be too healthy for this virus,” he said. “We are seeing people that crossfit on Tuesday and are on a ventilator on Friday. I can’t get the word out enough of what we’re seeing back here in these units.”
Dr. Bolding wants everyone to remember that the vaccine doesn’t work once you’re infected.
“I see someone daily for the last three weeks that is possibly dying, certainly very sick, that asks if they can get their vaccine,” he told CNN. “ And it is heartbreaking to tell them that that time has passed. That was five to six weeks ago to prevent this.”
Remember, it takes two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine to get full protection against the nasty delta variant. Get your shot today, and you won’t have full protection for four weeks. Putting this off only increases your chances of getting COVID.
