Mother–of–two Tricia Jones, 45, of Grain Valley, Missouri, who did not get vaccinated against COVID-19 out of fear of side effects, died after contracting the Indian variant of ‘Delta.’
Jones was apprehensive about getting the vaccine since she observed her mother, Deborah Carmichael, began to feel unwell after her first dose. Also, she had heard news reports about people suffering rare side effects such as blood clots or heart inflammation and decided to wait.
Deborah Carmichael told FOX 4 that she got her COVID-19 vaccine when it became available to her in the spring.
However, Jones was undecided and wanted to wait.
‘She was afraid of the side effects, I think,’ Carmichael told Fox4.
“You hear a lot of horror stories. 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.”
Then, Jones’ health began to deteriorate rapidly. She was admitted to Kansas City’s Research Medical Center in early May and placed on a ventilator on May 13.
Her COVID-19 symptoms faded over time, but her respiratory condition never improved, and she died on June 9.
Jones’ boy contracted the virus at his middle school in April, and his infection was eventually traced to the Delta variant. Jones and her husband, Keith, both became ill not long after.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Delta form of the virus has been proclaimed the prevalent strain in the United States, accounting for 51.7 percent of all new cases (CDC).
The Delta variation is connected to more than 80% of new infections in Midwestern states with low vaccination rates, such as Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri reported Daily Mail.
In the last two weeks, the number of positive COVID-19 cases in Missouri has risen dramatically. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the seven-day average of new cases reached 898 on July 1, up from 511 three weeks earlier.
The Delta variety, also known as B.1.617.2, has been dubbed a “double mutant” by India’s Health Ministry since it carries two mutations: L452R and E484Q.
Jones’s family is now urging the public to get vaccinated, rather than risk contracting COVID-19 as she did.
Although Jones’s death is tragic, the vaccine and its complications have killed many others; in fact, some people have had two shots and have ended up in the hospital.
According to the Center for Communicable Disease Control’s (VAERS) own reports, experimental coronavirus vaccines have caused more deaths in the first three months of 2021 than for the past ten years combined.
On top of that, there are thousands of reports of adverse effects such as paralysis, seizures, blindness, Parkinson’s, difficulty breathing, and other issues that people who have had the vaccines report but are not correctly reported by the mainstream media.
