  • ‘I’m sorry, but it’s too late’: Alabama doctor on treating unvaccinated, dying

    Dr. Brytney Cobia said Monday that all but one of her COVID patients in Alabama did not receive the vaccine. The vaccinated patient, she said, just needed a little oxygen and is expected to fully recover. Some of the others are dying.

    “I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections,” wrote Cobia, a hospitalist at Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham, in an emotional Facebook post Sunday. “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.”
    I guess you can't take the vaccine after you are sick. 33.7% of people in Alabama are fully vaccinated. Sounds like a prime place for Delta. Isn't someone here from Bama?

      He probably is very safe, I'd think any kind of antibodies are a lot better than none. Hope he got vaccinated also.

        Some research suggests natural antibodies are better than those from vaccine. BUT, there is always a but. The vaccine does stimulate your immune system and shows it what to look for in the future. This takes some time so if you get it, that part of the process is of no use and you are on your own, which is a race to see if your system can get up to speed before you die.

          Alabama is the least vaccinated state in the country.

            Alabama Republican Gov. Kay Ivey suggested Friday it was time to start blaming unvaccinated people for the spread of the delta variant and the rise in COVID-19 cases.
            “Folks are supposed to have common sense. But it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down,” Ivey told reporters.
