He refused COVID vax, got the virus and lost both lungs

A double lung transplant later, a 43-year-old Texas man who didn’t think he needed a COVID vaccination is now hoping others like him will get inoculated so they, too, don’t learn the hard way that the pandemic that has k*lled 600,000 Americans is serious.

“If I knew what I know now, I would have definitely went through with the vaccination,” Joshua Garza told ABC News.

According to the Sugarland, Texas, gas and oil industry worker, he had an opportunity to get vaccinated in January and took a pass. Later that month, he contracted the deadly virus. On Feb. 2, Garza fell while trying to walk and was rushed to a hospital, where he was hooked up to a machine that pumped and oxygenated his blood. He said it took three weeks before his lungs were “already shot.”

Garza was put on a transplant list and found a new pair of lungs, which were transplanted into his body on April 13. On May 27, he finally left the hospital with a new lease on life.

“Mr. Garza is an extreme example of somebody who had complete lung failure, and there was really no other way out in the immediate future other than transplant,” Houston Methodist director Dr. Howard Huang told ABC News.

Huang, who was one of the physicians who saved Garza, said it was “almost miraculous” that everything from finding a hospital room during the pandemic to getting a new pair of lungs so quickly played out in Garza’s favor. The hospital reportedly has several patients on life support awaiting lung transplants.

According to Huang, there’s no guarantee Garza wouldn’t have been ill if he’d been vaccinated, but “it’s likely that we would have never gotten to this point.”

He called Garza “extremely lucky” and noted that getting a couple of shots is a lot easier than getting a new pair of lungs.

ABC News reports that Garza is urging others not to follow his lead, though commenters on that media outlets website expressed frustration over the fact that Garza undermined the dangers of the pandemic in the first place and that he was given a pair of lungs that might be needed by someone who behaved more responsibly.

He's in that 1% group.

I got it and only got mild symptoms. I powered through it like a high level man.

Same

I got it, didnt get any bad symptoms or anything (one weird long covid symptom though), but now, ive spent the past 5 months looking for information on people who got covid and whether its actually beneficial to get the vax

To this point i havent gotten it because i feel like i dont need, i already got the actual virus and now my body knows whats up and how to f*ght, but why isnt there more research on this? All i hear is you need it no matter what, even if you got it, but why?

I got the vaccine even though I didn't think I needed it, body creates anti-bodies against the virus.
I just thought with all the vaccine passport talk, it would be better if I got than if I didn't.

Those lungs could've went to a more deserving person who doesn't disregard health protocols.

Caught it, had some back pain and a fever for a day.

Didn't even think it was covid til Wifey said she couldn't taste her food.


Took vitamins and turned up my cardio for a few days to sweat it out.

I figure if I didn't get major symptoms from the actual virus, the vaccine was going to be a cakewalk.
My arm did hurt and I had some muscle aches for a day.

Microchip feels funny though....





















Just kidding.

I'll take my chances. Some people who took the mark of the vax have lost their whole lives.

That's the same bullsh*t logic that got Joshua with two new air intakes. That 1% argument sounds goods until you're the 1%.
