A Missouri woman didn't want a COVID-19 vaccine for fear of side effects. She caught the Delta variant and died.

A woman who turned down a COVID-19 vaccine utimately caught the disease and died.

Tricia Jones from Kansas City said she was wary of adverse effects from the shots.

Missouri has one of the lowest vaccination rates in the country.

A Missouri woman who refused to get a COVID-19 vaccine because she was afraid of its side effects died in hospital last month after contracting the Delta variant, her mother told local news outlets.

Tricia Jones, a 45-year-old mother of two from Kansas City, died on June 9 after a month in hospital on a ventilator.

Her mother, Deborah Carmichael, told local media that Jones was concerned about the vaccine after hearing "a lot of horror stories."

"She was afraid of the side effects, I think ... I, myself, when I had the shot, it was rough, so it scared her and freaked her out. So she didn't want to do it. I couldn't convince her," Carmichael said, according to Newsweek.

Side effects from the vaccine are often a sign that the body is building immunity to the virus. In general, the coronavirus vaccines produce mild to moderate side effects that shouldn't last more than a few days.

This chart shows which side effects to expect based on your age, manufacturer, and dose.

Jones' 18-year-old daughter, Adriana, said she hopes no one else will "go through what we went through... Especially with the variant," Newsweek reported.

Missouri is one of the five states with the lowest vaccination rates in the US. Health experts there are racing to get people vaccinated as the Delta variant is taking hold.

The number of positive COVID-19 cases in Missouri has been spiking in the last two weeks. As of July 1, the seven-day average of new cases hit 898, up from 511 three weeks earlier, data from Johns Hopkins University shows.

"Unfortunately, the arrival of the Delta variant in Missouri is driving transmission of the virus, and is resulting in increased illness and hospitalization among a younger population and the unvaccinated," Herb Kuhn, Missouri Hospital Association President, and CEO, said in a statement.

It’s actually a pretty sad story. Her daughter has autism.

————————————————

Carmichael said, by April, Jones’ son caught the Delta variant at his junior high school, and both Jones and her husband got sick, too.

“After she got it, she said, ‘Mom you were right, about the shot, about masks, being diligent and all that.’ I was like, ‘I don’t want to be right. I want you to be well. That’s all that matters,'” Carmichael said.

Delta variant prompts some US leaders to call for return of masks indoors Jones was hospitalized and on May 13 she was put on a ventilator and then died on June 9.

“I felt like, as her mom, I brought her into this world, and the most loving thing I could do if it had to come to this is usher her into the arms of the Lord. It wasn’t my choice. It wasn’t what I wanted. Everything in me was screaming, ‘No, this can’t be right. She’s only 45,'” Carmichael said.

She leaves behind two children, including 18-year-old Adriana Jones.

“She was my best friend. She was my best friend,” Adriana said.

Adriana has autism and said her mom was her greatest support. In high school, she said she was bullied a lot because of her diagnosis, and her mom was her biggest advocate. She would come to the school and work with her counselors on how to help her.

This year, Adriana graduated high school without her mom by her side. They planned to take classes together at Metropolitan Community College. She was going to take psychology classes, and her mom planned to study business.

Feds trying to boost COVID-19 vaccines in low income, minority communities in KC “She was actually in the middle of helping me figure it all out for it, and now I feel lost because I don’t understand none of it,” Adriana said.

When her mom was in the hospital, her COVID-19 symptoms subsided. But she wasn’t able to get off the ventilator and wasn’t awake. Adriana said she would sit by her mother’s bed, and they would talk and read to her. They would read her daily devotionals, psalms, and even play some of her favorite music hoping to connect with her.

“There were so many days where I would just stand there next to my mom and say, ‘Wake up, mama, wake up.’ She would never wake up, and I just wish that she would. I don’t think anyone should have to go through what we went through. Especially with the variant,” Adriana said.

Her family is praying people will see Tricia’s life as a call to action to get their vaccine — if not for themselves, for the ones they love.

“Please take this seriously. You don’t want to see a family member you love go through this,” Carmichael said. “You have a way better chance of coming out OK than if you don’t.”

CONTINUING COVERAGE: Tracking coronavirus in the Kansas City region “I really miss you. I miss you a lot,” Adriana said.

Carmichael said she wants people to understand that the variant can be very hard on people’s bodies. She said they watched her daughter get sick very quickly.

She said nurses told her they were seeing people coming into the hospital younger and younger after not getting vaccinated. Some metro health departments tell FOX4 they are seeing younger patients getting sick as well, some of them 30 years old and younger.

There have been some very rare severe complications from the vaccines. Again, they are very rare. You have a better chance of being killed or disabled in a car accident on the way to the grocery store than you do dying or winding up disabled from the vaccines.

Hard to have empathy for people who are willfully ignorant and stubborn, especially when it affects their health and those around them. Much of this refusal to get vaccinated is cultural/tribal/political. Trump was among the first to get vaccinated, but he doesn't promote it even though it will likely save tens of thousands of lives, because anti-science and anti-common sense is significant part of his followers mentality that he builds political clout by exploiting and manipulating.

The 4,115 number does not represent all breakthrough infections that have happened. They are just reported cases where hospitalizations or deaths happened to occur.

But consider the fact that over 150 million people in U.S. have already been fully vaccinated in U.S. Doing a quick calculation with your abacus and your fingers and toes will reveal that the [bold]4,115 cases[/bold] (note: not deaths) constitute less than 0.003% of all fully vaccinated people in the U.S. Compare that with the measured effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccine, which has ranged from about 70 percent to 95 plus percent.

And on and on and on.

R84 there’s a lot of chatter about the second mRNA shot causing heart complications. That must be the fiftieth case I’ve heard of someone having a severe cardiac issue right after vaccine #2. Where there’s smoke...

From R119’s link:

[quote] For months, Zuern, a member of the pro-Trump group the United Cape Patriots, had promoted conspiracy theories about the pandemic on Facebook. . . Zuern died at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston of severe complications caused by COVID-19, according to the report. She was 70 years old and had not been vaccinated.

🤷‍♂️ What can you do? These people think that they know better than everyone else, especially legions of doctors and scientists who have devoted their lives to studying these issues. Instead of accepting well documented science — even with a healthy dose of skepticism — they choose to see nefarious and ridiculous conspiracy theories at every turn. And then, when these ignorant clods get sick and die, the rest of us get to point at them and say that they were clearly wrong. Too late for them! Inexplicably, they are so willing to “own the libs” that they gamble with their health and are willing to pay for this extreme risk with their lives.

They are irredeemable. Sadly, their intransigent stupidity has the potential to bring the rest of us down with them. 🤬

I can almost guarantee had the woman in r119’s article lived, she would’ve denied it was COVID and claimed some other illness caused her to be in the hospital. There’s no dealing with stupidity.

R118, thousands got sick from a bad batch of the polio vaccine. People knew some people were going to have very bad side effects or die. But they took it anyway because polio was bad and people back in the olden days actually cared about protecting other people and society as a whole. Everyone took it, you couldn’t go to school without it. As soon as it was available, people got in line.

No vaccine has ever been 100%, especially not with all the variants we have now. Which have only developed because people refuse to be vaccinated or wear a mask. But people still take vaccines, because 65% protection is better than zero protection. And if you expose a sick person to a disease, that person could die. And that person’s life has value to them and their family. It’s not up to you to decide you’re the only person in the universe that matters. Narcissism doesn’t trump reality.

I read an interview with a nurse who said she had COVID patients who denied the virus' reality even as they were being intubated.

R138, some people may deny reality but it doesn’t change reality, like people who think the vaccine is worse than Covid, then they die from Covid.

I have issues with doctors who post on Twitter.

What I find amusing about this is that former anti-vaccers, like Sean Hannity, Ron DeSantis and the governor of Alabama are now saying the unvaccinated should consult their physicians about getting the shot.

This just shows how fucking out of touch these people really are. Consult your physician???? Really???? Most of these yahoos don't have a physician to consult because they fucking don't have health insurance. They're luck if they've seen a doctor once in the previous 10 years. If they are seriously ill, they end up as charity cases as the local hospital ER.

Consult your physician, indeed. So entitled. So upper middle class. So predictable for Republicans.

A Springfield hospital has had 70+ deaths so far this month. None vaccinated.

I have a irrationally low tolerance for stupid people. They can’t help how their brains (don’t) work. Still, it’s annoying.

I guess a more charitable way to look at it is that we’re all stupid in SOME area.

But I like the bumper sticker, “Lead, follow, or [italic]get out of the way.”

Another one bites the dust. A friend of a friend lost her mother only a few days after she tested positive. She didn’t even make it to the hospital. 70-something with multiple not well controlled co-morbidities. Whole family heavily anti-vax. Granny was upset to miss a grandchild’s wedding this weekend. Then she died. The party must go on and I’m sure it’ll be wall to wall covidiots double dipping at the Covid fountain.
