A man in Georgia needed a double lung transplant after refusing a coronavirus vaccine and then getting infected. His suffering prompted his mother to urge others in his position to get vaccinated. Blake Bargatze, 24, has been hospitalized since April, NBC News reported. His mother, Cheryl Bargatze Nuclo, told the NBC affiliate WXIA that he was hesitant to get vaccinated ahead of attending an indoor concert in Florida, where he was likely infected. She said he wanted to wait much longer before getting a shot: "He wanted to wait until it was out for, like, 10 years or so, kind of like a lot of the population wants it to be out longer."
