34 year old CA. man who mocked vaccines has died after becoming infected

Younger people are now getting infected and dying. None of this new surge would have happened if masking and vaccinations had not become politicized. Biden was laughed at for wearing his mask. A map of low vaccination rates basically follows the red state blue state divide.

What the hell was all of this ever about - except saving lives. Why we advocates for masking and vaxing so belittled over and over?

Here's a story of an anti-vaxxer - now dead- - there are many others - including the story of a little girl without symptoms who recently died in Georgia:

California man who mocked COVID-19 vaccines has died after becoming infected with the virus.

Stephen Harmon, 34, died on Wednesday at Corona Regional Medical Center, about an hour east of Los Angeles.

Prior to his hospitalization, Harmon shared a series of jokes on social media about vaccines.

“I got 99 problems but a vax ain’t one,” he wrote in June on Twitter.

In another tweet the same month, he made fun of the Biden administration’s outreach efforts to push vaccines.

“Biden’s door to door vaccine ‘surveyors’ really should be called JaCovid Witnesses. #keepmovingdork,” he wrote.

Harmon had been treated for pneumonia and critically low oxygen levels in the hospital, news station KCBS-TV reported.

Three days before his death, Harmon shared that he was being placed on a ventilator and asked his followers to pray for him.

“If you don’t have faith that God can heal me over your stupid ventilator then keep the Hell out of my ICU room, there’s no room in here for fear or lack of faith!” he wrote on Twitter.

Hillsong Church founder Brian Houston paid tribute to Harmon, who had been a member of the Los Angeles congregation.
