Alabama Doctor Opens Up About COVID-Deniers Who Beg For The Vaccine Before Dying

Dr. Brytney Cobia has recently penned an impassioned Facebook post, making a sobering call to everyone who doesn’t believe in COVID vaccines.


According to the Alabama doctor, when laying in their deathbed due to complications, unvaccinated people regret refusing the COVID-19 jab. Some even beg for it now, but Brytney says it’s too late.


“I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections. 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,” she wrote in a heartbreaking post that moved so many people and went viral with 4.3k likes.


So read on for a harrowing picture of what happens with unvaccinated COVID patients in the front lines, when doctors are no longer able to do much else. The read is especially relevant in light of the highly contagious Delta variant that’s spreading across the globe.

Brytney told AL.com that treating patients with the coronavirus who refused to get vaccinated hits at the core of her heart. “You kind of go into it thinking, ‘OK, I’m not going to feel bad for this person, because they make their own choice,’” the doctor who, along with hundreds of other Alabama physicians, cared for COVID-19 patients commented.


It all changes when she sees those people face to face. “Then you actually see them, you see them face to face, and it really changes your whole perspective, because they’re still just a person that thinks that they made the best decision that they could with the information that they have, and all the misinformation that’s out there.”

Recounting the heights of the pandemic some time ago, Brytney didn’t hide how horrifying working in the front line really was. “Back in 2020 and early 2021, when the vaccine wasn’t available, it was just tragedy after tragedy after tragedy. You know, so many people that did all the right things, and yet still came in, and were critically ill and died.”

The current wave of new Delta patients reminds Brytney of the time in October and November of 2020. It was right about the time of Alabama’s tragic peak in coronavirus patient cases and deaths. “What we saw in December 2020, and January 2021, that was the absolute peak, the height of the pandemic, where I was signing 10 death certificates a day,” she told the news outlet.


“Now, it’s certainly not like that, but it’s very reminiscent of probably October, November of 2020, where we know there’s a lot of big things coming up.”


Alarmingly, today, Alabama has the lowest vaccination rate in the country with just 31% of the state’s population having been fully vaccinated. Meanwhile, over the past two weeks, the rolling average number of daily new cases in Alabama has increased by 694, which translates into a whopping 573% increase.


And this is what people had to comment in response to her post
