HORROR: A healthy man warns that not being vaccinated is the “worst mistake of my life.”
A HEALTHY 60-YEAR-OLD MAN has cautioned that failing to get vaccinated against the coronavirus was “the biggest mistake of my life.”
Mr. Abderrahmane Fadil spent nine days in intensive care on oxygen after deciding that his immune system was “strong enough” and that he didn’t need to get vaccinated against the dangerous disease. “My wife had the vaccine,” the 60-year-old added. I didn’t do it. I was apprehensive. I was giving myself time, assuming that I’d dealt with viruses and germs before and that my immune system was up to the task.
“And I’d got Covid symptoms at the onset of the pandemic and assumed I’d caught it.
“I assumed my immune system would recognize the infection and that I would be protected.
“It was the worst mistake I’ve ever made, and it almost cost me my life.
“I’ve made a lot of stupid decisions in my life, but this was the most dangerous and consequential.
“I wish I could go to every person who refuses to get the vaccination and say, ‘Look, this is a life or death situation; do you want to live or die?’ If you want to live, you must get the vaccine.”
Dr. John Wright, who works at the Royal Bradford Infirmary, stated that around half of the patients on his wards who require specialized coronavirus therapy have not been vaccinated.
Faisal Bashir, 54, a coronavirus patient in the same hospital, required to be maintained on oxygen for a week.
He had previously felt that because he was fit and healthy, he “didn’t need” the vaccine.
The 54-year-old, who was being treated at Bradford Royal Infirmary, believed he could avoid contracting the virus by not getting vaccinated.
“I was offered the vaccine, but I was arrogant,” Mr Bashir told the BBC.
“I used to go to the gym, cycle, walk, and run.
“I didn’t think I needed it because I was strong and healthy.
“That also meant I wouldn’t have taken any risks if it turned out to be unsafe.
“However, the truth was that I couldn’t avoid contracting the infection.
“It still hasn’t gotten to me.
“I have no idea how or where to start.”
“People are overloading hospitals by taking chances, and that is wrong,” the 54-year-old remarked.
“I’m in a bad mood.
“I feel terrible about it, and I’m hoping that by speaking up, I may help.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
