FL Couple Regrets Skipping Vaccines After Being Hospitalized For COVID-19

A husband and wife in Jupiter, Florida, are both currently hospitalized after contracting COVID-19. Cindy has been receiving treatments for 14 days. Her husband, Juan, is on a ventilator, receiving dialysis, and in critical condition. Neither were vaccinated against the virus.

From WPTV:

Juan is a co-pastor at a local church and is in critical condition. WPTV is told four other pastors and at least 15 others at the church all have COVID-19.

“She hasn’t seen him for 14 days. We’re trying to get her to see him,” said Dr. Todd Bradford, the chief of medicine at Jupiter Medical Center.

Bradford is working non-stop with the recent surge in coronavirus cases. He said the majority of his patients and people being admitted have not been vaccinated, and now Cindy regrets her hesitation.

“I think I would have not been so scared with all the media and gone out and got the vaccine for both of us,” Cindy said.

Bradford told WPTV he’s only seen two ‘breakthrough cases’ (patients who were vaccinated). He says their symptoms were much more mild than those who are not vaccinated.
