'I'm sorry, but it's too late': Alabama doctor on treating unvaccinated, dying COVID patients

Dr. Brytney Cobia said Monday that all but one of her COVID patients in Alabama did not receive the vaccine. The vaccinated patient, she said, just needed a little oxygen and is expected to fully recover. Some of the others are dying.

“I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections,” wrote Cobia, a hospitalist at Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham, in an emotional Facebook post Sunday. “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.”
“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. So they thank me and they go get the vaccine. And I go back to my office, write their death note, and say a small prayer that this loss will save more lives.”

1. At this point


I'm appalled for the people that catch this terrible disease and die now if they didn't get vaccinated. I feel sorry for them that they couldn't figure things out. Biden and the rest of the people including Fauci and others were begging them to get this vaccine. So what the fuck were most of them thinking when they didn't get it. Making a political statement or just being stupid. In any case bottom line, in the end they fucked themselves.

7. FOX News, facebook disinformation, trump and republicans...

are all to blame for these unnecessary deaths. They pushed the hoax myth on covid for months then started sowing doubt about the vaccines.

If there's anyway to prosecute them, it should done.

Law suits maybe if they can't be prosecuted.

6. It's in the article

“And the one question that I always ask them is, did you make an appointment with your primary care doctor and ask them for their opinion on whether or not you should receive the vaccine? And so far, nobody has answered yes to that question.”

4. I think more of them will start getting vaccinated now that Hannity told them to.

Many of them believe everything he says. They hold him in high regard.
