When Glynn Steel, 54, lay dying from severe COVID in a Worcestershire, UK, hospital, he begged nurses for the vaccine. His last words to his wife Emma were: “I have never felt so ill; I wish I’d had the vaccine.”
But it was too late. After nearly a month in ICU and being induced into a coma, he died in November.
Steel, a vegan, had originally decided against getting vaccinated because the vaccines, like most medications, were tested on animals. His case exposes the worrisome, and at times fatal, consequences of anti-vax thinking playing out among a small but influential group of vegans on the internet who are exploiting the reasons many people go vegan to guilt others out of getting vaccinated.
