Unvaccinated Bride Spent Wedding Day in Hospital on Ventilator Before Dying From COVID
...Wendell was found to have "dangerously low" levels of oxygen upon her admittance to a hospital and was diagnosed with bilateral pneumonia shortly thereafter. By September 6, she was found to be negative for COVID and was allowed to see loved ones during normal visiting hours. Doctors were optimistic that she would make it.
However, on September 9, a CT scan showed that she had major scarring all over her lungs.
"And at that point, there was no chance of survival for her," Eskew said. She was taken off of the ventilator and passed away the following day. Her funeral was held on September 18.
Eskew admitted that he and his fiancée had not gotten vaccinated due to misinformation they had seen. Wendell in particular was hesitant after hearing false claims that the shots were causing women to become infertile.
"At one point in time, I believe it came from one of her friends, to be honest, it could have been something she saw on Facebook because it pops up everywhere on there, but it was about fertility loss," Eskew told Fox 11. "We wanted to have a family. That's why we were hesitant at first."
Infertility has emerged as one of the predominant false narratives surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines. Like most vaccine misinformation, it is believed to have initially spread on social media. COVID-19 itself appears to be more detrimental to pregnancy than any vaccines, as pregnant women have experienced an uptick in stillbirths due to the virus.
