Vaccination: The only option to protect ourselves and our family
"Covid comes out and a year later, there's a vaccine. We didn't know the side effects in the future. I'm going to get the vaccine. Yes, it's not going to cover you 100 percent. But what I experienced, I don't want anyone else to experience this. Everybody has their own choice, but Covid is real and what I went through I don't want to be back there again," said Ismael Vega, news.com.au reports.
Ismael Vega revealed that his wife was okay in the initial days of the Covid infection. However, her condition deteriorated rapidly on July 13. Medical staff soon discovered a lot in her lungs, and she died within an hour.
"All I did was just hold her hand, massaged her hair, told her how much I missed her. But I saw peace. I didn't see any more pain. The pain was just that she was gone," Ismael Vega told KTAR News.
