The resident from Bristol in Virginia, Travis Campbell who is in ICU, has been sharing video updates of his recovery on Facebook and urging others who have not gotten the vaccine yet to do so and last week many strangers who have been following his story online have been moved to actually get vaccinated.
“I have never been this sick in my life!! My whole family has covid, I truly regret not getting the vaccine. I’m testifying to all my bulletproof friends thats holding out, it’s time to protect your family, its not worth getting long term lung damage or death please go get the vaccine,” he shared two weeks ago. Since then, he has been posting video updates chronicling his time in the hospital, and people all over the world have been wishing him a speedy recovery.
“You’re saving lives everyday,” said one commenter. And it’s the truth! There is no denying that vaccination helps slow the spread of the virus, especially the highly contagious Delta variant, which experts at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention say is “as contagious as chicken pox.”
Some have also shared that his story has convinced them to get the vaccine themselves.

“Thank you Travis Campbell I went an[d] had mine because of your story,” shared yet another commenter.
While not every person who comes across Travis’s story will get vaccinated, it is a relief to see that the severity of the pandemic is actually hitting for folks who were convinced it was nothing but a flu (or worse, some sort of conspiracy.)
Here’s hoping that people don’t wait to experience it themselves and get their vaccinations ASAP, for the sake of both themselves and their loved ones.
