Unvaccinated father begs people to get jabbed as he struggles in ICU

An anti-vax dad-of-three who boasted he was a “hero” for refusing to get jabbed is now urging people not to follow his lead after the killer virus left him fighting for life in hospital.

Andrew Pugh, 52, previously turned his back on getting a life-saving injection, but after contracting Covid just before Christmas now says he “wishes he’d had the vaccine”.

At one point he was so sick his family were told he only had a 50% chance of survival and he was rushed onto intensive care on December 5.

Incredible doctors battled to keep Andrew, from Worcester, alive and over a month after being first admitted he is still reliant on an oxygen mask.

Speaking from his hospital bed at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, Andrew now says he wishes he had been jabbed.

He said: “I didn’t get the vaccine, I thought I was being the hero.

“If it wasn’t for the nurses and the fact I’m a non-smoker I wouldn’t be alive – they saved my life.

“I want to say thank you to the staff in the ICU for giving me my second chance, it has been hard and it still is.

“Please people get your vaccinations, you don’t want to end up like me.

“When you’re dead and all your family are heartbroken you can’t turn around and say ‘I wish I had the vaccine’.

“This is very real and people need to get their jabs.”

The binman has now been moved onto a ward but remains on oxygen as he continues his recovery from long Covid.

He was admitted to hospital on December 5 and was only allowed one visitor to spend an hour with him on Christmas Day.

His niece, Sophie Pugh, has now organised a collection for the staff on the intensive care unit as a thank you for their life-saving work.

Delivering the haul of goodies just two days before Christmas, she said: “We managed 16 bags, three boxes, bottles of water and juice plus a few vouchers.

“All of it has been donated to the intensive care unit currently caring for Andrew, they potentially saved his life.

“To say they were shocked was an understatement, thank you to every single person that helped make this happen.”

Since the booster roll-out, 59% of people in the UK aged 12 and over have been double or triple-jabbed.
