A few months later, people hope to be immunized against COVID-19 and then fight against the disease in the future. A few weeks later, Air Force veteran Diane Drewes was on the phone when the phone rang I took my last breath at a hospice center in Ohio. It was a medical worker who called to arrange her first appointment for the coronavirus injection.
Druze’s daughter, Laura Brown, was shocked during the January conference call, but did not criticize the call or even explain that her 75-year-old mother was dying. She said it didn̵
Brown said: “But my sister and I feel sorry that it’s too late.” “This seems to be the last insult.”
Since the vaccine was first provided in mid-December, more than 247,000 people in the United States have died of COVID-19. Officials warned that it would take several months to distribute enough vaccines to achieve immunity in the herd. Since the initial supply of vaccines is extremely limited and the virus spreads throughout the country during the winter, it is a sad reality that some vaccines will be infected with COVID-19 and die before being vaccinated.
The survey shows that a large part of the American population is skeptical of vaccines, so it is impossible to say exactly how many dead people even want to be immunized. But Brown said her mother desperately wanted one. Other families have experienced similar painful experiences, telling stories about relatives who were infected after months of safety protection and then died before taking the medicine.
Charlotte Crawford worked in the microbiology laboratory of Parkland Hospital in Dallas for 40 years. Thanks to her work, she received two doses of Moderna vaccine in January. Complete immunity. However, she endured the pain of watching her husband and two adult children contract COVID-19 and die before the shooting.
The widow said that Henry Royce Crawford, 65, had an appointment for the vaccine when he was ill. Crawford said that their children, 33-year-old Roycie Crawford (Roycie Crawford) and 38-year-old Natalia Crawford (Natalia Crawford), also wanted to shoot, but I haven’t found the shot when I was sick and died.
The days since their deaths in late February and early March have been a mess for Crawford. When she begged anyone who was willing to be vaccinated as soon as possible, she was still trying to find out what happened.
“All I know is that I attended three funerals in three weeks,” said Crawford of Forney, Texas.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 96 million people in the United States have received at least one dose of the vaccine, but only 53 million people have received full vaccination, accounting for about 16% of the US population.
With the widespread use of doses now, the pace of shooting is accelerating. With the increase in virus cases, more than a dozen states have opened up vaccination eligibility to all adults.
Only one injection is completed by Johnson & Johnson. Therefore, the waiting time between the first injection and the second injection of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will cause the recipient to remain vulnerable and vulnerable to infection, requiring several weeks of waiting.
Daughter Julie Rasmussen said that waiting for the second shot was too long for Richard Rasmussen in Las Vegas.
Richard Rasmussen, 73, firmly believes in wearing a mask for protection, and received the first dose of Pfizer vaccine in early January. She said: “He is very happy to get the vaccine.”
Julie Rasmussen said, however, Rasmussen tested positive for the virus 10 days later and died on February 19 before receiving a second dose. She said that his final drop was breathtaking.
“Now I am alone,” Rasmussen said in an email interview. “He used to be my best friend. We text every day, all day long. I have no brothers or sisters. No husband/boyfriend. He is single. I browse the legal system and clean up his house alone.”
On the same day that Rasmussen died, Deidre Love Sullens of Oklahoma City stood in the icy snow parking lot of the vaccine clinic because of his mother, 65-year-old Catherine Douglas ( Catherine Douglas and her stepfather, Asa Bartlett Douglas (Asa Bartlett Douglas) died and felt grief, 58 years old, and then filmed COVID-19 within 16 days.
“They and I see the vaccine as the only life-changing factor, which allows us to witness it again. This is our goal. We all aim to get the vaccine so that we can get together again so that my mother can be with My daughter plays so that we can go to the nursing home to visit my grandmother, not just visits,” Sullens said in an email in an interview.
On that cold February day, due to bad weather preventing others from making appointments, they had to work hard to get a worker named Surens into the clinic for immunization. Sullens said she was overcome by tears and an “incredible feeling of surrealism” as she entered.
“I was thinking,’If only my parents can stay for two more months… they will be vaccinated here too. They are still alive. They will be here with me,'” she said.
