Woman begs people to get vaccinated after mum, gran and fiancé die from Covid in same week


Tiffany Devereaux, 35, is pushing for more people to get vaccinated after she lost her 35-year-old fiancé, Britt McCall, her 65-year-old mother and her 85-year-old grandmother to coronavirus in just five days.

Ms Devereaux, who lives in Florida, told local news station WJXT: “I lost my grandmother on Saturday, lost my fiancé on Monday and lost my momma yesterday [Thursday]. I had to skip going to my [grandmother’s] funeral so I could get to the hospital to say goodbye to my momma.

“I feel so lost. I don’t know what to think or how to feel right now. I want my loved ones back. They are the ones that always got me through the hard times in my life, and now, they’re all gone.”

Ms Devereaux also tested positive for Covid but had mild symptoms. She said her grandmother was the only member of her family who had been vaccinated.

She continued: “My mom and fiancé, their last wish was for me to get vaccinated. They told me how painful this virus was. I just want everyone to know how important this is.”

Mr McCall’s father, Mark McCall, 60, also died from Covid and his mum Sherry, 58, had received treatment in hospital after contracting the virus.

Mr McCall’s sister, Payten, 24, told CNN: “It has been one of the most, roughest and hardest experiences that I have ever had to go through in my whole life, and I would never, ever wish this on anybody in their family.”

President Joe Biden this week expressed his sadness of the rising-yet-preventable deaths among the unvaccinated.

He said in an address from the White House: “Right now, too many people are dying or watching someone they love die and say, ‘If I’d just got the vaccine’.

“This is an American tragedy. People are dying who don’t have to die.”

A GoFundMe for Ms Devereaux’s family has raised more than $6,000 and a separate fundraiser for Ms McCall’s family has raised more than $10,000 at the time of writing.
